Surat Thani Travel on The problem we have with such important theoretical contributions is that they seem to disavow the deep transformations that the institutional framework of the state is undergoing in the present. These involve the insertion of the state in global assemblages that tend to exceed it as well as more micropolitical contestations that have led to what Foucault calls the governmentalization of the state. Our analysis sheds light on some of these transformations, following the thread of a multiplicity of subjective figures whose movements, struggles, and conditions are symptomatic of the vacillation of boundaries of the institutional form we have inherited from the modern state. One of the ways political philosophy has registered such transformations is through an intensified concern with the exclusionary function of the border and with the legitimacy of the division between members of a polity and foreigners (Cole 2000; Hashmi and Miller 2001; Mezzadra and Neilson 2012). Citizenship studies, in particular, have contributed in a crucial way to challenging the clear-cut distinction between citizens and noncitizens and have highlighted the agency of strangers, outsiders, and aliens as a crucial force driving the development of citizenship (Isin 2002). From a historical and a theoretical point of view, the attempt has been made to work through the ambiguity of the concept of citizenship, which increasingly appears not as a unitary or monolithic whole but as a divided concept (Bosniak 2006, 3). The tension between citizenship as legal status and a multiplicity of practices of citizenship has been increasingly recognized as constitutive of the concept (see, for instance, Honig 2001,104).
