Abstract:This article focuses on 'step-wise' migrations and specifically on cases of emigration from Senegal and entry to the Spanish labour market. The labour regime is conceptualized as unfree labour mobility, which integrates dispossession, territorial control, illegalization, the ideology of racism and the exploitation of labour. Finding salience in earlier theories of unfree labour, the article shows how the control of capital over migration to Europe perpetuates underdevelopment.
