Abstract

Lampedusa in Hamburg: Im Mai 2013 gingen über 300 Migrant_innen auf Hamburgs Straßen, um ihre Rechte einzufordern und ihre zwangsweise Rückführung nach Italien zu verhindern. Ihr Protest versetzte die Stadt, ihre Bürger_innen, ihre Debatten und Grenzen in Bewegung. Die Protestierenden machten die europäische Migrationspolitik und ihr Scheitern sichtbar und stellten bestehende Konzepte von Bürgerschaft grundsätzlich infrage. Vor allem aber überraschten sie durch ihr Handeln als Bürger_innen Europas – ein Handeln, das in gängigen Bildern von leidenden, an den Rand gedrängten Migrant_innen nicht vorgesehen ist. Birgit Niess begleitet in dieser Ethnografie den Alltag der beginnenden Protestbewegung und stellt dabei immer wieder die Perspektive der Lampedusa in Hamburg-Mitglieder in den Vordergrund. Wie sah ihr Alltag in der Warteschleife aus? Welche Bündnisse und welche Brüche entstanden dort, wo sich die Protestbewegung und zivilgesellschaftliche Organisationen wie Kirchen und Gewerkschaften begegneten? Wie wurden hier Rechte verhandelt? Mit vielen Alltagserlebnissen, Begegnungen und Originaltönen zeichnet sie ein vielschichtiges, widersprüchliches Bild einer gleichermaßen dynamischen und brüchigen Bewegung, die sich eher mit Fragen als mit Antworten greifen lässt.

Abstract

This open access book deals with contestations “from below” of legal policies and implementation practices in asylum and deportation. Consequently, it covers three types of mobilization: solidarity protests against the deportation of refused asylum seekers, refugee activism campaigning for residence rights and inclusion, and restrictive protests against the reception of asylum seekers. By applying both a longitudinal analysis of protest events and a series of in-depth case studies in three immigration countries, this edited volume provides comparative insights into these three types of movement in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland over a time span of twenty-five years. Embedded in concepts of political change, limited state sovereignty, and migration control, the findings shed light on actors, repertoires, and the effects of protest activities. The contributions illustrate how local contexts, national political settings, issue specifics, and social ties lead to distinctly different forms of protest emergence, dynamics, and strategies. Additionally, they give a profound understanding of the mechanisms and constellations that contribute to protest success, both in terms of preventing deportations of individuals as well as changing policies. In sum, this book constitutes a major contribution to empirically informed theoretical reflections on collective contestation in the fields of refugee studies and social protest movements.

Abstract

Sometimes, the maelstrom of a crisis can be captured in a single image. The image of the mundane, barely noticeable movement of an urban dweller as they go about their everyday life. Athens and the War on Public Space commences from images just like this one, collected over a two-year period of research (2012–2014) in Athens during a time of severe financial and political crisis. For the author-curators of this volume, public space became a light-sensitive surface upon which they could begin to map the material imprints of the most structural and violent characteristics of the crisis, and their research spread in different directions, tracking the role of infrastructure and the shifts the financial crisis brought about upon built environments, the violent manifestations of the official anti-migrant policy, the rise of racism, the imposition of the emergency upon public space, and the phenomenology of mass transit.

Abstract

"Between 1941 and 1945, some 6,500 Berlin Jews, in fear for their lives, made the choice to flee their impending deportations and live submerged in the shadows of the capital of Nazi Germany. The experience was brutally difficult, and most did not survive. Yet the experiences of 1,700 who did demonstrate a remarkable and hitherto unconsidered level of agency among the survivors. This book sheds light on the daily life of those who hid and on the city that was both the source of their persecution and the site of their survival. "

Abstract

The Open Access version of this book, available at http://www.tandfebooks.com/doi/view/10.4324/9781315474052, has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 license Today, Pride parades are staged in countries and localities across the globe, providing the most visible manifestations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex movements and politics. Pride Parades and LGBT Movements contributes to a better understanding of LGBT protest dynamics through a comparative study of eleven Pride parades in seven European countries – Czech Republic, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK – and Mexico. Peterson, Wahlström and Wennerhag uncover the dynamics producing similarities and differences between Pride parades, using unique data from surveys of Pride participants and qualitative interviews with parade organizers and key LGBT activists. In addition to outlining the histories of Pride in the respective countries, the authors explore how the different political and cultural contexts influence: Who participates, in terms of socio-demographic characteristics and political orientations; what Pride parades mean for their participants; how participants were mobilized; how Pride organizers relate to allies and what strategies they employ for their performances of Pride. This book will be of interest to political scientists and sociologists with an interest in LGBT studies, social movements, comparative politics and political behavior and participation.
