Chapter 14: Migration policies at the Spanish border in Southern Europe: between welfare chauvinism, hate discourse and policies of compassion
Restricted access

Fernández-Suárez focusing in the case of Spain is able to unveil how in Western countries the political agenda on migration management has its main focus on migration control. Her arguments are based on the emergence and growth of xenophobic parties in Europe which have caused a rise in hate speech and this has been followed by ‘welfare chauvinist’ policies and by emotional responses in opposition to empathic and compassionate policies). In order to analyse the development of her research she also uses as references the context of restrictive liberalism in Western societies, the paradigm of late neoliberalism, populism and necropolitics.
