History has for a long time focused on the stable aspects of societies; recently, however, in the context of a rising interest in global interconnections, people on the move have caught the attention of historians. The article follows this interest in stressing the importance of faster mobility for sustaining the expansion of empires or the development of a world economy in the wave of globalisation at the turn of the 20th century. Yet at the same time – and this has mostly been neglected – it is crucial on the one hand to distinguish different kinds of mobility and on the other to analyse how these differentiations were actually established at a time of increasing acceleration. This is pursued by first introducing concepts that have developed such a differentiated approach towards mobility, or rather mobilities. Subsequently these arguments are taken further through an investigation of the political processes that determine the distinction between different mobilities. This structuring of mobilities becomes most evident in spaces where different trajectories overlap and intersect. What emerges is neither all-encompassing acceleration nor the hardening of borders and constraints, but rather the channelling of movements in an attempt to bring them under control.
