Movement and the Ordering of Freedom: On Liberal Governances of Mobility
An Interlude: A Tale of Two Roads—On Freedom and Movement
By looking at the iconography and technology of the separated road system in the Palestinian West Bank (also known as apartheid roads), this chapter shows how control over populations is established via the separation of movement. Moreover, these populations are produced via different logics of movement. Specifically, the chapter shows how an embedded failure in the system of marks that supposes to regulate movement undoes the possibility of full citizenship. To understand this system the chapter unfolds a genealogy of self-regulation that—it argues—is essential to the formation of liberal citizenship.
