For those migrants, outsider prestige operates as either a style of subjectification and as a domain of lively resistance, forcing observers to reconsider the enactment of citizenship. McNevin connects abnormal migrant activism to the complicated rescaling of the neoliberal country. States more and more prioritize transnational marketplace kin that disrupt the spatial context for citizenship. while, states police their borders in ways in which reinvigorate territorial identities. Mapping the large dynamics of political belonging in a neoliberal period, McNevin offers useful perception into the social and spatial transformation of citizenship, sovereignty, and power.
