The border, as IÂ€discuss further later, is located at these points in time and space that are charged with a political force typical of globalization generating the border; it is not necessarily at the gateways of European countries. It is also important to emphasize how the process of Europe’s disappearing internal border checks has tremendously impacted constructions of the idea of Europe to the point that it has been underlined in Article 3, para 2, of the new Treaty on the European Union [TEU] as modified by the Treaty of Lisbon in force since 1 DecemberÂ€2009, as it statesÂ€that: The Union shall offer its citizens an area of freedom, security and justice without internal frontiers, in which the free movement of persons is ensured in conjunction with appropriate measures with respect to external border controls, asylum, immigration and the prevention and combating of crime.
Each chapter is a door to open and point out the idea of the border as a possible passage but also as a barrier, a filter, and a violent break in migrants’ journeys. It was with great contentment that IÂ€realized much later in the process of writing this book how a few African migrants actually shared the same vision of the border, not seen inevitably as a wall that impedes migrants’ journeys but from time to time as a beacon of politics and life like the island of Lampedusa. Migrants are quite wary of those borders that shut down their hopes but know very well that others are meeting points where no one stops and continues the journey.
