States, Borders and Migrations: who is protected one?


The emancipatory promise of an international regime for the protection of human rights sat in securing rights for all regardless of their nationality. In the dominant imagination, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights initiated a time when borders could no longer be considered as boundaries to the recognition of basic rights. However our times have seen the return of boundaries; and this limited understanding, through the policies and restraints that countries of the center impose on the flow of people originating from the peripheries. The recognition of rights replaces one of two strategies: in situ containment or humanitarian intervention.
