The Schengen Agreement have opened many European borders and allowed border controls to virtually disappear. The effect of this opening can be illustrated especially well with the example of the German-Luxembourgish border region. Here, national borders have largely lost their dividing effect, which is reflected, amongst other things, in the very intensive daily mobility and residential mobility. This article shows that the diversity of the cross-border practices has relativised the national borders, which, however, persist in the form of new demarcations. This relationship of dissolvement and simultaneous continuity, as it is concisely described with the figure of thought “phantom borders”, will be examined by using example of cross-border residential migration. The number of Luxembourgers who recolate their residence to the German federal states of Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate has risen significantly in recent years. This article is based on data from four different empirical studies, which, using a variety of methods, were concerned with the developments of residential mobility in the border regions of Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate. The results are fundamentally in agreement that the massive residential migration has brought with it spatial differentiations and social demarcations on a local as well as on a regional level. These materialise and manifest themselves in different ways: easily accessible by public or private transport vs. not easily accessible; new residential developments vs. town and village centres, autochthonous vs. allochthonous, Luxembourgers vs. non-Luxembourgers. In all of these demarcation processes, the persistence of national categories is expressed, and they thus refer to the phantom-like continuity of territorial borders in general, as well as a clear incongruity of territorial borders and social demarcations in the context of residential migration in particular.

This article will engage with some recent changes in addiction discourses and research in order to introduce a new version of pleasure. Looking at how addiction research has reframed the ‘addict’ as a socially situated and contingent ‘consumer’, I will try to understand the role of excess in the distinction between ‘normal’ and ‘problematic’ consumption. This distinction remains prevalent, even in recent works on pleasure and drug-use. Pleasure is crucial here, because it is intimately related to consumption, yet has been previously ignored in research. Whereas the previous distinguishing feature of ‘addict’ and ‘non-addict’ can be argued to have been one of ‘production’ and ‘consumption’ (alongside a whole list of other attributes), the current debate seems to focus on various forms of consumption – the pursuit of pleasure through consumption being contentious. I argue that Bataille’s formulation of overwhelming pleasure offers a way of combining excess and pleasure in a manner that is not problematic, further breaking down the distinction between ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ consumption. However, at the same time a new dichotomy is created between ‘overwhelming’ and ‘purposive’ pleasure, a distinction that might offer new ways of distinguishing ‘problematic’ and ‘unproblematic’ consumption in relation to druguse. The version of pleasure formulated is argued to be absent in current work looking at pleasure in addiction, and a valuable addition to the growing repertoire of the types of pleasure available to addiction research.
