The architecture of international migration law: a deconstructivist design of complexity and contradiction

Chetail, Vincent

In: American Journal of International Law Unbound. - Cambridge. - 111(2017), p. 18-23

Abstract: International migration law (hereinafter IML) can be described and conceptualized as a deconstructivist architecture both literally and metaphorically. It is an architecture of fragmentation based on dissonance and asymmetry that questions the traditions of harmony, unity, and stability. Initiated by the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, the deconstructivist architectural movement distorts the conventional oppositions between form and function, center and margin, outside and inside.
