Mapping Mobile Borders: Critical Cartographies of Borders Based on Migration Experiences

Abstract : In this chapter, we will be looking at the conditions for the emergence of critical maps and mapping performances which go beyond the state-centric perspective of conventional border maps, and which allow us to analyze critically the cartographic practices of geo-surveillance, particularly in the context of migration. Our purpose is to envision a critical border cartography based on the study and visualization of borders from the perspective of those who try to cross them and who are excluded from the right of migration. By choosing to focus in particular on individual experiences of migrants, the aim is to contribute to the decentralization of state meta-narratives on border politics.
