Description

Migration is normal. But as a topic it fuels a polarized political climate. It undermines the European Union: its political unity, and its founding principles of human rights and human dignity. This inquiry deconstructs the binary structure of this political climate. For this end, the author has developed a new strategy, which stems from a critical reading of modern continental philosophy. Her deconstruction strategy shows how a subject–centered philosophy, the use of abstract language, particularly inspired by Max Weber’s legacy, and the War on Terror discourse since 9/11, contribute to a binary structure of thinking, which has shaped the public European Migration Discourse since 2015.
