Er det slik at erfaringer med eksklusjon og en følelse av å ikke helt høre til i Norge er en avgjørende bakgrunn for en gryende politisk mobilisering blant etterkommere av innvandrere? Dette er blant spørsmålene Mette Andersson, Christine M. Jacobsen, Jon Rogstad og Viggo Vestel tar opp i den nye boka Kritiske Hendelser – Nye stemmer. Politisk engasjement og transnasjonal orientering i det nye Norge.
Randi Gressgård ’s book Multicultural Dialogue: Dilemmas, Paradoxes, Conflicts (Berghahn Books 2010, paperback 2012) is debated in the July issue of Dialogues in Human Geography, book review forum 1. The forum includes four review articles and the author’s response.
Launching in 2013, Migration Studies will showcase scholarship that builds connections across the distinctive field of migration studies. Migration Studies welcomes high quality research on human migration in all its manifestations, and particularly work that presents:
– comparative findings with relevance beyond a single case study
– new methodological techniques and insights, or
– new theoretical takes on the drivers, dimensions and impacts of migration.
