Migration Across Boundaries: Linking Research to Practice and Experience (Studies in Migration and Diaspora)

‘This is an exciting new book that genuinely crosses boundaries in novel ways through its interdisciplinary engagement with migration. In privileging the experiences of migrants as creative actors, it expertly combines innovative perspectives using various artistic forms and more conventional research to not only promote understanding of migration but also to inform policies that will ultimately bring about change for the better.’ Cathy McIlwaine, Queen Mary University of London, UK

Homeward Bound? Questions on Promoting the Reintegration of Returning Migrants
Return migration is almost always a strategy aimed at empowering the host nation’s right to governance and border management rather than a strategy of concern for the people at stake.
Fault-Line City: Tangier Dreaming North
Human migration, when triggered by economic factors, rather than forced by war, ethnic violence or natural disaster, begins, not with the crossing of borders per se, but with the movement of imagination across space.
Home-Work: gender and urban immigrant relocation
The home is in the world and vice-versa. What this leads to is a revision of the city as public space, or polis, articulated through a liberating mode of gendered, and hence human, relations
On gender and migration
More than through any other lens, migration foregrounds gender as a construct that is also at once a process in the making; one, too, that lends itself to change and flux. It exposes the fluidity of gender.
Where to now? Governing the migration crisis in the Mediterranean
It is through dialogue, not wars, that Europe can work towards alleviating the humanitarian crisis that is apparent on its shores.

A call to rethink the language of migration in order to recognise the humans at the heart of migration debates.
Changing places: Between here & there, the local & the global
Who exactly is a migrant? Is it my fellow traveller, the person queuing at the border or the neighbour from another country who lives next door to me but, like me, came here from another place? Who, among us all, is not a migrant?
Death at the Mexico-US Border: from reaction to engagement
Yet again, a photograph erupts into the collective sightline: a picture of a father and child who drowned whilst attempting to cross over from Mexico to the United States.
India’s internal migrants are citizens too – the government must protect them
The largest mass migrations in South Asia since the time of partition are taking place in India during the COVID-19 pandemic. Indians are on the move in every direction from the major urban centres, criss-crossing the nation on their way homeward to towns and villages across the country.
The rights of refugees in Africa are under threat: what can be done?
Only by honouring legal humanitarian commitments and empowering its refugees can African states develop in ways that are sustainable.
How the UK’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda is 21st-century imperialism writ large
The Rwanda scheme presents troubling echoes of the UK’s imperial past: the colonial transportation of slaves and indentured workers across continents and seas…
