Both internal migrant workers and illegal immigrants within India experience displacement and illegality in strikingly similar ways. This paper shows how this shared precarity is manufactured by the state in service of the global neoliberal economic order. By doing so, the paper challenges conventional understandings about citizenship.
Western imports such as the nation state, representative democracies and the idea of sovereignty played a huge role in perpetuating divisive identities in post-independence Sri Lanka. By ascertaining the role of colonialism in Sri Lanka’s ethnic conflict, this paper emphasizes the need to decolonize the region and builds a case for further research exploring non-western solutions to the ethnic divide.
