Globalisation, rights and the non-citizen

The latest issue of Sociology on the sociology of human rights includes a review essay I wrote on ‘Globalisation, rights and the non-citizen’. The essay takes as a starting point three recently published monographs that, through the analysis of three groups of non-citizens – respectively asylum seekers (Lydia Morris), refugee children (Halleli Pinson et al.), and migrant sex workers (Rutvica Andrijasevic) – examine the tension between two coexisting traditions and regimes of rights, those nested in the nation-state and its institutional apparatus and those available to all human beings by virtue of their shared humanity and increasingly institutionalised at international and national levels.
