Utopian Political Theory and Migration without Borders
A utopian political theory (UPT) can emerge from the analysis of borders. The significant increase in human mobility between State-borders constitutes the empirical referent distinguishing our ¡°Utopian Age¡± from others in the past, as historical examples of UPT have not dealt with either the issue of human mobility or the topic of ¡°Migration without Borders¡±. We start with a brief introduction about utopia as a political discourse (section 1). We go then to the main characteristics of UPT leading to a ¡°world without borders¡± (section 2). We seek to address this issue theoretically, to establish the bases of utopian thought not so much as a social theory, but rather as a political theory (section 3). This constitutes a prior phase for dealing with the irresolvable political dilemmas that have emerged from the management of migratory flows (section 4).
