Migration and insecurity: citizenship and social inclusion in a transnational era

Steiner, Niklaus and Mason, Robert and Hayes, Anna, eds. (2013) Migration and insecurity: citizenship and social inclusion in a transnational era. Routledge Research on the Global Politics of Migration, 3. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), London, United Kingdom. ISBN 978-0-415-66549-0


This book presents an inter-disciplinary investigation into contemporary migration and social inclusion through an examination of migrant and refugee experience.
In this edited volume, contributors discuss new understandings of individual and community security in a world where legal borders and definitions of citizenship no longer adequately capture the reality of migration. Distinguished contributors approach questions of social belonging and inclusion from diverse perspectives. Drawing its primary examples from Australia, Migration and Insecurity is framed by the wider experience of the Global North, with examples from Europe, the United Kingdom and United States woven throughout the collection. An inter-disciplinary approach to migration studies, this book integrates local, national and transnational spaces in its discussion of new constructs of inclusion and security. It considers questions of historical memory, ontological security, transnational communities, the role of civic institutions and social relationships in local spaces to guide the reader towards the wider conceptual questions of migration studies using expertise from the fields of sociology, gender, historical and political studies.
