Mobilities, Media and Governmentality: Asylum Seekers in Lacolle, Quebec

Zusammenfassung

Abstract: This article reflects upon the anomalous rise of irregular migration into Canada through the small town of Lacolle, Quebec and how the government chose to respond. Specifically, we examine how Canadian governmentalities of mobility express themselves in mass media coverage of irregular migration into Lacolle. Irregular crossings have presented a significant challenge to the ways in which the Canadian government has traditionally limited and compelled the agency of those subject to its power. To meet these challenges, the government has had to grapple with new governance strategies in a series of entangled infrastructural, policy, and narrative interventions. This article chronicles these recent developments and offers an analytical lens.
