'This volume brings a much needed contribution to cosmopolitanism in demonstrating how migrants through protest and resistance are re-drawing the boundaries of political community.'

-Gerard Delanty, Professor of Sociology and Social & Political Thought, University of Sussex, Brighton, UK

`Following the thread of migrants' movements and struggles this book gives a refreshing, radical, and new meaning to the notion of cosmopolitanism. While fences and walls proliferate around borders as well as within bounded spaces worldwide, the stubborn search for freedom of migrants invites us to politically reinvent and remake the world. This is a timely and inspiring book in hard times.'

-Sandro Mezzadra, Associate Professor of Political Theory, University of Bologna, Italy
