Example text

It seems to me that a focus on migration, rather than mobility, better reflects real power relations. There is little reason to believe that the structural factors driving labour migration—particularly from low- and middleincome countries to richer countries—have changed fundamentally after the global financial crisis (GFC) of 2007–2009. There is a further important point here: a dominant political discourse today is that migration is a problem that needs to be fixed by appropriate policies. The repressive variant is tight border control, the more liberal one is addressing the ‘root causes’ of migration—usually defined as poverty and violence in origin countries— so that people do not have to migrate (Castles and Van Hear 2010).

1998: Chap. 2). This model was developed to analyse internal movements in developing countries but is seen as applicable to international migration as well, provided that consideration is given to constraints arising from the role of states and their uneven power.

In addition, many workers came as daily commuters from the former East German hinterland of the state of Brandenburg. This competition had adverse effects on unionized building workers, many of whom were long-term foreign residents of Berlin.
