Techno-Migrants in the Network Economy

(p.153) Chapter 8 Techno-Migrants in the Network Economy
Global America?
Aihwa Ong
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the role of Asiatic techno-migrants in the network economy, especially in California and Vancouver. It also describes the effect of neo-liberalism on immigrants and shows how it transforms citizenship in North America. First, it describes how migratory regimes bring about spaces of governance. It then explores the effect of cosmopolitan citizenship based on human capital and residence. The chapter also discusses the interpenetrations of class, nationality and race in the restratification of the workforce; the proliferation of subcontracted work and social controls and ethnic enclaves; and suburban-level governance informed by lifestyle entitlements.

Keywords:   techno-migrants, California, Vancouver, neo-liberalism, immigrants, migratory regimes, cosmopolitan citizenship, nationality, ethnic enclaves
