ABSTRACT
Global capitalism's logic of discrimination, exploitation and exclusion can helpfully be illuminated by the concept of 'the frontier'. Frontiers are a necessary feature of migration and inevitably generate an "us" and a "them". The concept of an "internal frontier" carries this geopolitical boundary-making over into the everyday experience of immigrants, experienced in their very bodily being. "Fortress Europe" constructs the immigrant as a threat; the result is the immigrant's experience of being marked out as ill-fitting, inappropriate and out of place.
