Abstract and Keywords

This chapter describes the production of a migration crisis in Hungary and examines the politics it authorizes. After providing context into the emergence of the discourse of crisis in Hungary, the chapter examines the mechanisms used by the Hungarian authorities to keep the crisis alive in spite of the limited number of people receiving asylum in the country. Finally, the chapter studies the connections between the “migration crisis” and the marginalization of other social groups, particularly Roma. It argues that both are connected to the adoption of capitalist modes of development underpinned by moral economies that rely on the production of various “others.”

Keywords: Migration, crisis, Hungary, capitalism, Roma
