Abstract

“No-man’s-land” is a concept that, according to Campillo (2015), tends to be used to interpret the walled borders increasingly implemented by the governments in our globalizing world. This article is intended to show that the use of this concept applied to this phenomenon is descriptively inadequate, and to denounce that this use is intended to hide dynamics of injustice brought into action by these control devices. Following the conceptual framework proposed by Nancy Fraser, these dynamics will be systematized as dynamics of economic exploitation, identity recognition and political domination.
