dc.description.abstract This research explores Syrian migration movements to Egypt through the Sudanese smuggling route. By grappling with notions of sovereignty, critical geography, mobile subjectivities, and modes of governance, the thesis unpacks the recent flux on the route through describing the journey itself, as well as the way different bodies cross the border and settle. Through the multiple sites the research was conducted in, it seeks to contribute to growing discussions surrounding new understandings of migration. The thesis followed and traced the migration journey, from its beginnings in Khartoum, through Aswan, and ending in Cairo using various methodologies- namely: engaged ethnography and participant observation. Through these diverse methods, it asks, how are Syrians navigating the border, how have such movements changed the border, what categorizations emerge with the embodied experience of crossing the border, and finally, how has the Egyptian and Syrian social in Cairo adjusted to absorb the recent Syrian flux? en_US
