""The global city and asylum seeking are two major contemporary subjects of analysis to emerge both in the literature and public and official discourses on urban socioeconomic change, human rights and national security. Based on extensive original ethnographical research, this book looks at the situation of asylum seekers in Hong Kong and offers a narrative of experiences related to the rise of global cities; internal and external borders; and the performance of border-crossing and asylum politics.Hong Kong remains a city with no comprehensive legislation for refugee claims and maintains that the city would be flooded with abusive claims if changes were implemented. This book considers why Hong Kong has become a destination for asylum seekers, how asylum seekers integrate in local and global economic markets and how the illegalization of asylum seekers plays a significant role in the processes of global city formation""--
