Mobilité(s) sous surveillance: Perspectives croisées UE – Canada

Individual mobility is now less and less seen as an opportunity, an effect of the global market, or an ineluctable logic of human distress. In the context of the war on terrorism, mobility, however, is increasingly associated with images of danger, threat justifying such a proliferation of practices of border control and beyond, heightened surveillance policy individuals moving and general restrictions to free movement. Through a comparative reading between Canada and the European Union, subject to this collective work, which includes lawyers, political scientists, sociologists and anthropologists, is to show how the relationship between security – as the claim to protection and prevention – and the technologies of surveillance and control of the mobility of people – citizens, foreigners, illegal and clandestine – install the anxiety, fear and hostility in the heart of our Western societies.
