Aqmola Travel on We agree with Sidaway that graduated sovereignty is not therefore only about new boundaries per se, but is a complex and uneven experience of selective boundary crossings, subjectivities and exclusions (Sidaway 2007, 352). What interests us is precisely the role played by borders in producing and shaping subjects as well as the ways practices of mobility crisscross the multiple border struggles that challenge the sovereign machine of governmentality and its entanglement with shifting regimes of exploitation. In the next chapter we focus on the implications of new assemblages of sovereignty and governmentality and of the multiplication and heterogenization of borders for the important political concept of citizenship. Migration and mobilities are crucial forces operating in these processes as well as in the emerging postdevelopmental geographies we have been analyzing here. Latin America offers some interesting illustrations of how such postdevelopmental geographies insert themselves into urban, national, and regional environments. This is true even though the term postdevelopment has taken on a different significance in the Latin American context, designating the search for a kind of normative alternative to the perceived failings of mainstream development discourses and practices. Arturo Escobar explains his use of the term as follows, by postdevelopment, I mean the opening of a social space where these premises [the premises of mainstream development discourses and practices can be challenged, as some social movements are doing (Escobar 2010b, 20).
