|Abstract:||This dissertation analyzes everyday practices of externalization of African migration control beyond and within Europe's geopolitical limits, in sites such as detention centers in Libya, but also in Rome; in dinghies adrift at sea among herds of sophisticated military vessels, but also in machine-readable bodies adrift within European digital data fields. After exploring at length the role of Gaddafi's Libya in the last ten years as a gendarme of Europe, I deploy methodologies not only of International Relations, but also of transnationalism and translocalism to expand the concept of externalization beyond geospatial accounts of borders. Moving through spaces of in/security, and times of panic, this work redefines borders and frontiers in ways that can account for their dialectical nature, and for the dialectical nature of political life practices.|
