Open Borders: The Case Against Immigration Controls

by Teresa Hayter - £21.99  Pluto Press (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745322445 | ISBN 10: 0745322441

In this new & fully updated edition of Open Borders Teresa Hayter assesses the impact of the increasing severity of border controls since they were first introduced, and makes the controversial case for their abolition. Hayter focuses on post-Second World War immigration controls, especially their use against the peoples of former European colonies and East Europeans, and their effects on asylum seekers. She examines the recent history of European co-ordination of border controls and the notion of 'Fortress Europe'. Hayter argues that the existence of controls leads to great suffering and abuse of human rights, and that immigration controls are racist and help legitimise racism. She demonstrates that controls have actually had only a limited impact on controlling numbers. She compares British & European policies, and calls for the free movement of people to be recognised as a universal human right.
