In this interview with Marie-Caroline Saglio-Yatzimirsky and Ana Gebrim, Michel Agier looks back at what motivated him to write his latest essay, Fear of Others, published at the end of 2022. The rejection of the stranger and the phantasmatic construction of the horde and the undesirable have an impact on migration policies and discourses. Yet other imaginaries and other narratives are needed, explains the anthropologist.
