Migration, structural injustice and domination: On “Race”, mobility and transnational positional difference

Migration, structural injustice and domination: On “Race”, mobility and transnational positional difference
This article addresses current norms of the ‘dispersed’ regime of global migration governance centred on state control of borders as pivotal to the reproduction of structural injustice in the form of racialized patterns of transnational positional difference. It focuses on the implications of this structural injustice for global inequality and, more specifically, for fair access to migration opportunities. Drawing on Rawls’ discussion of background justice and Young's work on structural injustice, it argues that addressing this structural injustice requires constructing a regime of global migration governance that regulates state migration policies and proceeds to outline, within the terms of non-ideal theory, the basic norms of such a regime and to indicate some practical steps that could be taken toward such a regime

Abstract

This article addresses current norms of the ‘dispersed’ regime of global migration governance centred on state control of borders as pivotal to the reproduction of structural injustice in the form of racialized patterns of transnational positional difference. It focuses on the implications of this structural injustice for global inequality and, more specifically, for fair access to migration opportunities. Drawing on Rawls’ discussion of background justice and Young's work on structural injustice, it argues that addressing this structural injustice requires constructing a regime of global migration governance that regulates state migration policies and proceeds to outline, within the terms of non-ideal theory, the basic norms of such a regime and to indicate some practical steps that could be taken toward such a regime
