Despite being characterized as a "nation of immigrants, " the United States has seen a long history of immigrant rights struggles. In her timely book Against the Deportation Terror, Rachel Ida Buff uncovers this multiracial history. She traces the story of the American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born (ACPFB) from its origins in the 1930s through repression during the early Cold War, to engagement with "new" Latinx and Caribbean immigrants in the 1970s and early 1980s.Functioning as a hub connecting diverse foreign-born communities and racial justice advocates, the ACPFB responded to various, ongoing crises of what they called "the deportation terror." Advocates worked against repression, discrimination, detention, and expulsion in migrant communities across the nation at the same time as they supported reform of federal immigration policy. Prevailing in some cases and suffering defeats in others, the story of the ACPFB is characterized by persistence in multiracial organizing even during periods of protracted repression.By tracing the work of the ACPFB and its allies over half a century, Against the Deportation Terror provides important historical precedent for contemporary immigrant rights organizing. Its lessons continue to resonate today.

Joel Perlmann traces the history of U.S. classification of immigrants, from Ellis Island to the present day, showing how slippery and contested ideas about racial, national, and ethnic difference have been. His focus ranges from the 1897 List of Races and Peoples, through changes in the civil rights era, to proposals for reform of the 2020 Census.

This book explores the regional coordination and impact of state responses to irregular migration in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. The main argument is that regional and international trends of securitisation and criminalisation of irregular migration, often associated with framing the issue in terms of migrant smuggling and human trafficking, have intensified carceral border regimes and produced greater precarity for migrants. Bilateral and multilateral processes of regional coordination at multiple levels of government are analysed with a focus on the impact on asylum seekers and migrant workers in major destination and transit countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, and Australia. The book will be of interest to a wide academic audience interested in the interdisciplinary field of Border Studies, as well as general readers concerned with the treatment of refugees and migrant workers who cross borders in search of safety, security, and a better life.

  • Of "Kings" and "Lepers" : the gendered logics of Koreanness in the social lives of Korean Americans
  • "Aren't we all the people of Joseon?" : claiming ethnic inclusion through history and culture
  • The logics of cosmopolitan Koreanness and global citizenship
  • Conclusion : finding family among foreigners.
Between Foreign and Family explores the impact of inconsistent rules of ethnic inclusion and exclusion on the economic and social lives of Korean Americans and Korean Chinese living in Seoul. These actors are part of a growing number of return migrants, members of an ethnic diaspora who migrate "back" to the ancestral homeland from which their families emigrated. Drawing on ethnographic observations and interview data, Helene K. Lee highlights the "logics of transnationalism" that shape the relationships between these return migrants and their employers, co-workers, friends, family, and the South Korean state. While Koreanness marks these return migrants as outsiders who never truly feel at home in the United States and China, it simultaneously traps them into a liminal space in which they are neither fully family, nor fully foreign in South Korea. Return migration reveals how ethnic identity construction is not an indisputable and universal fact defined by blood and ancestry, but a contested and uneven process informed by the interplay of ethnicity, nationality, citizenship, gender, and history.

This book analyses the European border at Lampedusa as a metaphor for visible and invisible powers that impinge on relations between Europe and Africa/Asia. Taking an interdisciplinary approach (political, social, cultural, economic and artistic), it explores the island as a place where social relations based around race, gender, sex, age and class are being reproduced and/or subverted. The authors argue that Lampedusa should be understood as a synecdoche for European borders and boundaries. Widening the classical definition of the term `border', the authors examine the different meanings assigned to the term by migrants, the local population, seafarers and associative actors based on their subjective and embodied experiences. They reveal how migration policies, international relations with African, Middle Eastern and Asian countries, and the perpetuation of new forms of colonization and imperialism entail heavy consequences for the European Union. This work will appeal to a wide readership, from scholars of migration, anthropology and sociology, to students of political science, Italian, African and cultural studies.

Calais has a long history of transient refugee settlements and is often narrated through the endeavour to `sanitize' it by both the English and the French in their policy and media discourses. Calais and its Border Politics encapsulates the border politics of Calais as an entry port through the refugee settlements known as the `Jungle'. By deconstructing how the jungle is a constant threat to the civilisation and sanity of Calais, the book traces the story of the jungle, both its revival and destruction as a recurrent narrative through the context of border politics. The book approaches Calais historically and through the key concept of the camp or the `jungle' - a metaphor that becomes crucial to the inhuman approach to the settlement and in the justifications to destroy it continuously. The demolition and rebuilding of Calais also emphasises the denigration of humanity in the border sites. The authors offer a comprehensive insight into the making and unmaking of one of Europe's long-standing refugee camps. The book explores the history of refugee camps in Calais and provides an insight into its representation and governance over time. The book provides an interdisciplinary perspective, employing concepts of space making, human form and corporeality, as well as modes of representation of the `Other' to narrate the story of Calais as a border space through time, up to its recent representations in the media.ã This book's exploration of the representation and governance of the contentious Calais camps will be an invaluable resource to students and scholars of forced migration, border politics, displacement, refugee crisis, camps and human trauma.

Every minute 24 people are forced to leave their homes and over 65 million are currently displaced world-wide. Small wonder that tackling the refugee and migration crisis has become a global political priority. But can this crisis be resolved and if so, how? In this compelling essay, renowned human rights lawyer and scholar Jacqueline Bhabha explains why forced migration demands compassion, generosity and a more vigorous acknowledgement of our shared dependence on human mobility as a key element of global collaboration. Unless we develop humane 'win-win' strategies for tackling the inequalities and conflicts driving migration and for addressing the fears fuelling xenophobia, she argues, both innocent lives and cardinal human rights principles will be squandered in the service of futile nationalism and oppressive border control.

"Si l'histoire du colonialisme a le vent en poupe, celle des colons reste souvent dans l'ombre. Joël Michel jette une lumière nouvelle sur ce qu'on appelle un peu abstraitement l'impérialisme européen en étudiant la colonisation de peuplement, l'aventure de ces pionniers qui, à la différence des armées de conquête, s'installèrent, firent souche, créèrent une société différente de celle qu'ils avaient imaginée. L'européanisation du monde, au XIXe siècle, se manifeste par une formidable poussée démographique qui touche, marginalement, une Afrique bien moins accueillante que les Amériques et l'Australasie. Français, Espagnols et Italiens d'Algérie et de Tunisie, Boers et Britanniques d'Afrique du Sud, de Rhodésie et du Kenya, Portugais d'Angola et du Mozambique, Allemands de Namibie s'emparent des terres, organisent le travail forcé. Peur de l'ensauvagement, violence du rapport colonial, tentation généralisée de ségrégation allant parfois jusqu'à l'apartheid, évolution vers un capitalisme agraire ennemi du peuplement rural forgent une société dans laquelle les colons s'enferment avant que l'histoire ne les rattrape brutalement. En décrivant la mainmise foncière, les relations de travail, les peurs et les aspirations de ces minorités isolées, leurs illusions prolongées dans une relation triangulaire avec les dominés et avec les métropoles qui finit par les broyer, Joël Michel signe une fresque saisissante d'un aspect trop délaissé de l'histoire coloniale."--Page 4 of cover.

This book examines how African, Asian, Middle Eastern and Latin American diasporas use media to communicate among themselves and to integrate into European countries. Whereas migrant communities continue employing print and broadcasting technologies, the rapidly growing applications of Internet platforms like social media have substantially enriched their interactions. These communication practices provide valuable insights into how diasporas define themselves. The anthology investigates varied uses of media by Ecuadorian, Congolese, Moroccan, Nepalese, Portugal, Somali, Syrian and Turkish communities residing in Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the UK. These studies are based on research methodologies including big data analysis, content analysis, focus groups, interviews, surveys and visual framing, and they make a strong contribution to the emerging theory of diasporic media.

This book throws new light on the impact of informal `old boy' networks on British decolonisation. Duncan Sandys was one of the leading Conservative politicians of the middle decades of twentieth-century Britain. He was also a key figure in the Harold Macmillan's `Winds of Change' policy of decolonisation, serving as Secretary for the Colonies and Commonwealth Relations from 1960 to 1964. When he lost office he fought strenuously to undermine the new Labour Government's attempts to accelerate colonial withdrawal and improve race relations in Britain. Sandys developed important private business interests in Africa and intervened personally through both public and official channels on the question of Rhodesia, Commonwealth immigration and the `East of Suez' withdrawal in the late 1960s. This book will appeal to students of decolonisation and twentieth-century British politics alike.

"Dans le moment migratoire que nous vivons depuis 2015, c'est dans les villes et au niveau des villes que se pose la question de l'accueil. À l'heure des crispations sécuritaires et de la montée des extrêmes droites en Europe, les villes peuvent fonctionner comme des espaces intermédiaires entre l'État et les citoyens pour affirmer des définitions propres de l'hospitalité et, dans certains cas, fournir des contrepoints à la tentation du repli. "Bibliothèque des frontières" est une collection de 7 titres dirigée par Michel Agier et Stefan Le Courant pour penser la violence des frontières contemporaines et réinventer les politiques d'hospitalité."--Page 4 of cover.

This book draws renewed attention to migration into and within Africa, and to the socio-political consequences of these movements. In doing so, it complements vibrant scholarly and political discussions of migrant integration globally with innovative, interdisciplinary perspectives focused on migration within Africa. It sheds new light on how human mobility redefines the meaning of home, community, citizenship and belonging. The authors ask how people's movements within the continent are forging novel forms of membership while catalysing social change within the communities and countries to which they move and which they have left behind. Original case studies from across Africa question the concepts, actors, and social trajectories dominant in the contemporary literature. Moreover, it speaks to and challenges sociological debates over the nature of migrant integration, debates largely shaped by research in the world's wealthy regions. The text, in part or as a whole, will appeal to students and scholars of migration, development, urban and rural transformation, African studies and displacement.

"Impossible, dit-on, de faire plus de place aux réfugiés dans notre pays. Parce qu'ils sont trop nombreux, parce qu'on manque de moyens... Pourtant, envers et contre tout, il existe une France qui accueille. Quelle est-elle ? Ce sont ces gens qui croisent une fois, deux fois, des réfugiés, et qui, la troisième fois, se disent qu'ils ne peuvent plus passer devant eux sans rien faire. Ce sont ces maires qui pensent que leur commune a les moyens d'accueillir des familles et que la population locale n'a rien à y perdre, et peut-être même tout à y gagner. Ce sont ces associations qui s'engagent pour organiser un accueil large et digne, où la solidarité l'emporte sur le contrôle et la répression. Cet ouvrage propose un tour de France de l'hospitalité : il raconte des histoires d'accueil, sans complaisance mais avec le souci de sortir du pur débat d'idées et de mettre un pied dans la réalité de ces expériences. Car il existe indéniablement en France un vivier de solidarités, mais trop souvent contrecarré par le manque de volonté politique des pouvoirs publics et par un climat d'inquiétude et de méfiance. En réponse aux discours de peur et de repli, ce livre met en lumière la France qui accueille pour donner envie à chacun de la rejoindre."--Page 4 of cover.
