    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Migranticization&lt;/em&gt; can be understood as those sets of performative practices that ascribe a migratory status to certain people and bodies &amp;ndash; labelling them (im)migrants, second-generation migrants, people with migration background, minorities, etc. &amp;ndash; and thus (re-)establish their a priori non-belonging, regardless of whether the people designated as &amp;lsquo;migrants&amp;rsquo; are citizens of the nation-state they reside in or not, and regardless of whether they have crossed a national border or not. Migranticization can be considered as a technology of power and governance; it places people in a distinct hierarchy which goes along with an unequal distribution of societal symbolic and material resources while it affirms a national &amp;lsquo;we&amp;rsquo; within a system of global inequalities. The suggestion is to use migranticization as an analytical lens which makes it possible to investigate the uses of migration-related categories and their consequences in terms of power and ex/inclusion from/in a global system of inequalities and nation-states.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
