Reece Jones, author of Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move
‘A timely and powerful read for those who support the politics of a freedom of movement not just as a utopian ideal, but who aspire to realize the possibilities of radical alternatives.’
Kim Rygiel, author of Globalizing Citizenship
‘King provides engaging and insightful accounts of a politics that not only radically questions the legitimacy of borders but disrupts their very material presence. She shows us that No Borders is not a political programme but a world making practice. Another world, already here.’
Dimitris Papadopoulos, author of Escape Routes: Control and Subversion in the 21st Century
‘Thoughtful, provocative and engaged, King’s powerful analysis of No Borders communities in Calais and Athens is a must-read for critical scholars and activists alike.’

‘Borders have failed to contain a world in motion or offer a just settlement for millions of people. What is politics in the wake of this double failure? With its focus on new forms of social movement and political action, No Borders will prove vital reading for anyone seeking answers.’
William Walters, Carleton University
'Cogent and thought-provoking … King writes of elusive ambiguities and inherent tensions within a utopian no borders politics, offering scholarly direction as to how such an imagined world can exist.'
'No Borders cleverly weaves together interviews, personal testimony, and radical theory to offer a bold narrative of freedom of movement struggles in Europe … an accessible resource for anyone engaged in the battle against an increasingly violent global border regime.'
'The book’s contribution ... is to inspire a range of critical discourses on the nature of rights and activism.'
