In 2014, the ethics and politics of hospitality were brought into stark relief. Three years into the Syrian conflict, which had already created nearly 2.5 million refugees and internally displaced 6.5 million, the UN called on industrialised countries to share the burden of offering hospitality through a fixed quota system. The UK opted out of the system whilst hailing their acceptance of a moral responsibility by welcoming only 500 of the ?most vulnerable? Syrians. Given the state?s exclusionary character, what opportunities do other spaces in international politics offer by way of hospitality to migrants and refugees?

Hospitality can take many different forms and have many diverse purposes. But wherever it occurs, the boundaries that enable it and make it possible are both created and unsettled via exercises of power and their resistance. Through modern examples including refugee camps, global cities, postcolonial states and Europe, as well as analysis of Derridean and Foucauldian concepts, Migration, Ethics and Power explores:

  • The process and practice of hospitality

  • The spaces that hospitality produces

  • The intimate relationship between ethics and power

This is a brilliantly contemporary text for students of politics, international relations and political geography.

  • Ethics As Foreign Policy

    Ethical foreign policy has often been considered utopian, unrealistic and potentially very dangerous. Dan Bulley argues for a reconceptualisation of ethics as foreign policy, as both look to how we can, and ought to, relate to others. Inspired by ...

Recensioner i media

Dan Bulley explores how hospitality could be best managed for different types of migrations, examining the various reasons driving these decisions, and exploring the perspectives of countries and international organizations to help build an ethical structure of hospitality. He clearly explains why people move from one place to another; and the book helps structure an international ethics conception, and explicates the measures to be taken in this context. It is a valuable resource for students, researchers and those interested in contributing to the field with new studies.

We live in an age of humanitarianism, a time when the highest form of politics and the noblest form of citizenship is to help others. This book places this new pastoralism in a different light. What if all this saving, sheltering and caring is not a new softness tempering the harsh edges of power but increasingly one of power's most privileged mechanisms? Richly contextualized, incisive and provocative, this book will change the way we understand hospitality. To the history of social struggle it adds a new antagonism: host/guest, truly a dialectic for our time.  

Migration, Ethics and Space investigates the interaction of ethics and power in a range of spaces of hospitality that operate at and beyond the margins of the international state system. It astutely reveals that when people seek to cross borders or create spaces of their own, migration develops and hospitality is accessed, presumed, appropriated, or rebuffed. Dan Bulley’s critical exploration and insightful analysis shows that while hospitality can be experienced as a right, a form of exchange, an act of compassion, or clandestine or abusive, it is always a matter of ethics, power and space. In this book, the everyday ethics of hospitality takes the form of diverse spaces—including homelands, refugee camps, global cities, postcolonial states, and a supranational community, from which the author uniquely explores the themes of post-sovereign ethics and power in international politics. Brilliantly perceptive and passionately engaged, Migration, Ethics and Space will be of great interest to those who are concerned with the everyday practices of hospitality, post-sovereign spaces, and international ethics and politics. 

Dan Bully’s SPACES OF HOSPITALITY is a highly original contribution to the ethics and politics of international hospitality. It is philosophically astute, conceptually innovative and is distinguished by the depth of its political  and ethical attunement.

Bulley’s Migration, Ethics, and Space is a timely reminder that beyond the oft-discussed statist politics of the refugee crisis there is an ethical response to the refugee crisis that is already unfolding within, and beyond, states. That hospitality is productive of specific subj...
