Amour (sentiment amoureux)

La question des migrations de mariage a récemment attiré l'attention, notamment en ce qui a trait à l'accroissement du nombre de défis auxquels les populations d'États tiers font face en opposition aux citoyens européens lorsqu'il est question de réunification avec un époux ou un conjoint. À travers une analyse juridique détaillée, cet article se propose de se concentrer sur la question suivante: quelles connexions peuvent être faites entre la loi, l'amour, la mobilité et la souveraineté?

Cette introduction du numéro spécial traitant de la relation "émotion, gouvernabilité et néolibéralisme" situe ce thème au sein de la récente littérature en Relations internationales sur les émotions et conséquences émotionnelles. Cette littérature omet la liaison avec la gouvernabilité, notamment en raison de l'emphase accordé par Michel Foucault à la rationnalité pratique, tel que la "conduct to conduct" dans le cas de la gouvernabilité, ce qui a mené à la conclusion que ceux-ci sont démunis de dimensions émotionnelles. 

The link between marriage, family, the economy and the nation is a powerful one. Recent events in the United States, from the adoption of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act to state referendums on same-sex marriage during the 2004 presidential elections remind us that more than being a private domestic arrangement, marriage is a political institution. This chapter explore the case of the so-called 'mail-order brides' in the United States. 

The past 10 years have seen an increase in legislation pertaining to marriage migration in Europe. Such attention betrays various concerns and anxieties that intersect not only with issues of risk management, rights, and citizenship, but also with less tangible dimensions such as emotions, which become embedded in legal as well as in surveillance practices.

This introduction to the special issue on “Emotions, Governmentality and Neoliberalism” situates the theme inside the recent International Relations literature devoted to emotions and affect.This literature misses an engagement with governmentality, notably because Michel Foucault's prime concern with practical rationalities, such as “the conduct of conduct” in the case of governmentality, led to an assumption that these were devoid of emotional dimensions.

Marriage migration has recently drawn some attention, notably to the ways in which third-country nationals face increased challenges compared to European citizens when it comes to reunite with their spouse or partner. Foregoing a detailed legal analysis, this article rather seeks to interrogate the following: what connections can be drawn between law, love, mobility and sovereignty?

Advanced capitalism is characterized by a level of symbolic production that not only results in a dematerialization of labor, but also increasingly relies on highly emotional components, ranging from consumption desire to workforce management. Feelings as varied as love, anger, and desire are integral to neoliberal processes, though not in unproblematic and monolithic ways.
