Summary
This study provides a conceptually innovative account of the ways in which indifference to the desperation and hardship faced by thousands of migrants fleeing persecution and exploitation comes about. Featuring original, unpublished empirical material from four Economic and Social Research Council funded projects, it challenges the consensus that border controls are necessary or desirable in contemporary society, and demonstrates how immigration decision makers are immersed in a suffocating web of institutionalised processes that greatly hinder their objectivity and limit their access to alternative perspectives. Theoretically informed throughout, it draws on the work of a range of social theorists, including Max Weber, Zygmunt Bauman, Emmanuel Levinas and Georg Simmel
