This final chapter looks for a more moderate approach to border control, pointing out the inevitable and egregious consequences of denying humanity and refusing to recognize those among us. In acknowledging our shared humanity, it argues, we free the space to ask a series of questions. Can we justify the costs of detention? Are Britain (the US, Australia, France) prepared to turn away so many whose histories and daily life, in a multicultural, post-colonial society, they might share? What would it take to imagine and enact a different approach to border control? Is there space for more amicability under conditions of mass mobility? What are the main barriers to hospitality?
