This chapter examines the asylum–migration–community nexus as it is experienced in the United Kingdom (UK) within the context of globalisation. The various concepts and understandings of ‘community’ are viewed in the context of wider historical and social processes. The discussion also references Yar's recognitive-theory community and Nancy's concepts of the ‘inoperative community’ and ‘being singular plural’.

Keywords:   asylum–migration–community, community, recognitive theory, inoperative community, being singular plural
