Postcolonial studies can engage productively with new global power formations by taking into account the figure of the asylum seeker within the camp dispositif. This is easier said than done, however, because of the discipline's tendency to innately push and pull against itself. This book has explored the interaction between postcolonial studies and the experiences of asylum seekers in terms of the ban and the citizen's ‘we’, both of which exemplify inclusive-exclusive relationships. These terms must be set to work upon each other in order to unsettle the terms of belonging and hospitality. In Western countries, a pressing issue confronting asylum regimes is the atrophication of dignity to the vanishing point of bare life.
