Intersections of Displacement Operating at different scales and imagined places, homelessness and asylum seeking are issues of fundamental social justice typically viewed as a problem of cities and crises of national and international concern respectively. However, over the past two decades in particular, the increasing and volatile numbers of asylum seekers arriving in the West have created a new form of homelessness, mainly hidden, often vulnerable, and located in the interstices of international and local displacement. Considering refugee settlement in London, England, and Toronto, Canada, this book argues that this new form of homelessness also requires a new perspective in order to be properly understood, and this perspective should come from refugees themselves.   

The author’s proceeds from the sale of this book will be contributed to the Canadian Council for Refugees.

International Migration in the 21st Century: Problems and Solutions - This collection tackles the problems surrounding international migration, raising the question of the reasons for, and consequences of, being a migrant in the 21st century. Some of the issues it focuses on include migrant identities, integration, voting behavior, citizenship, and child health encountered in Europe and Turkey. The book also provides psychological, economic and micro-level analysis, together with social and judicial perspectives. It contributes to the endeavor to understand the global parameters on migration and potential solutions for a boundless global community.

Exploring Intervention - Drawing on nine case studies and innovative empirical material from various regions of Uganda, this edited volume focuses on the interplay between humanitarian, economic and academic intervention on the one hand and mobility, permanent transit and (re-)settlement on the other – not least against the background of the versatile trajectories of flight and displacement and cultural practices that can be observed in the diverse environment of the country. In doing so, on a methodological level, this volume casts light on multifaceted processes of academic entanglements and knowledge production, on self-positioning processes of the researcher and the various role conflicts connected to research in complex settings.

Processes of Immigration in Rural Europe - Contemporary immigration processes, such as forced migration and labour-induced mobility, as well as lifestyle and leisure-oriented movements, increasingly affect areas in Europe that are considered as peripheral or rural. This edited collection sheds light on the diversity of in-migration, its specific implications for development and strategies for coping.

The structure of the volume therefore follows four main themes: (1) conceptual reflections on immigration to peripheral rural areas and development prospects; (2) patterns and types of immigration processes, drawing on various case studies from all over Europe; (3) realms of integration: namely, housing, economy and social life; (4) immigration management with a special emphasis on regional and local strategies, undertaken by policy-makers, the private sector and civil society.
