actor-network theory, the Global South is a field of research, as at least some studies on Africa show which refer to the translation of concepts or travelling models (Behrends et al. 2014; Czarniawska and Sevón 1996). Another field where sociology has developed an interest beyond the Global North is neo-institutionalism with its concept of a ‘world society’ or ‘world polity’ (Drori et al., 2003; Meyer et al., 1997).

whole (cf. e.g. Parsons 1967, 1971; Eisenstadt 2000); since globalization has been discussed as a new major social trend, the vanishing point of sociological macro-analysis in principle has been either to describe the current shape of world society or to describe and explain its emergence and implications (cf. e.g. Wallerstein 1979; Meyer et al. 1997). Finally, macro-entities are said to be constituted by “emergent properties” (cf. Etzioni 1970) that distinguish them from a mere accumulation of individuals. All this clearly indicates that ‘macro’ does not only

context. In this it differs considerably from virtual spaces like the one analysed by Greschke in this volume, where interactions across borders are ev- eryday practices. In this article I will discuss, in which ways the Indernet is nonetheless part of a transnational space and how Jay's and Manuel's impres- sions can be interpreted. I will do so from the perspective of racism theory4 and as an outsider to the debates around transnationalism, hoping that this outsider perspective might add productive insights to this volume and the discussions about world society

The in- ternational scientific community is the most international of all the ele- ments of this rudimentary world society. Learned and scientific periodi- cals, international scientific societies, and the universities are the most elaborated and most internationally coherent part of this rudimentary worldwide network

immigration in world society. (Section 3) Labor market access for asylum seekers and granted refugees is a paradigmatic field to depict the inconsistent and heteronomous outco- me of biopolitical selectivity. Biopolitics can be observed within the European agendas as controlling migration (3.1) as well as, in recent legislation for asyl- um seekers, regulating their access to labor and labor-related social services (3.2). At the same time, this rationality produces con licting legal spheres and institutions in multi-scaled policy areas. (Section 4) Based on local case
