Abstract

People’s transnational mobilities, their activities to build homes in their countries of residence and their connectivities have resulted in multiplicities of belonging to encountered, imagined and represented communities operating within various political contexts. Migrants and their descendants labor to form and transform relations with their country of origin and of residence. People who see their origins in India but are now living elsewhere are a case in point. They have been establishing worldwide home places, whose growing number and vibrancy invite reconsideration of Indian diasporic communities and contexts in terms of ‘India(s) beyond India.’ Issues of belonging in Indian diasporas include questions of membership not only in the nation of previous and present residence and/or the nation of origin, but also in other communities and networks in political, economic, religious and social realms at local, regional or global levels. Yet, belonging – and especially simultaneous belonging – to various formations is rarely unambiguous. Rather, belonging in all its modes may entail dilemmas that arise from inclusions and exclusions. Bearing in mind such processes, the contributions to this volume endeavor to provide answers to the question of what kinds of difficulties members of Indian communities abroad encounter in connection with their identifications with and participation in specific collectivities. The underlying argument of all the essays collected is that members of Indian diasporas develop strategies to cope with the dilemmas they face in connection with their sense of belonging to particular communities, while they are subjected to specific power relationships. Thus, the volume sheds light on the ways in which dilemmas of belonging are being negotiated in intercultural fields.

Abstract

Ce livre aborde un terrain plutôt méconnu en sciences humaines et sociales, celui de l’émigration française. En s’intéressant à cette expatriation au Canada, notamment dans ses grandes villes anglophones comme Toronto, on se rend compte que ce pays est souvent perçu comme jeune, dynamique et bilingue. A priori, ceci semble garantir aux migrants francophones à la fois le dépaysement et la possibilité sécurisante de recourir au français dans la vie de tous les jours. Même si la découverte de la...

Abstract

Écrire les migrations, les errances et les exils, c’est se tourner vers les problématiques des déplacements et des passages. Se pose alors la question de la définition de l’écriture migrante, définition nécessairement mouvante selon que l’on s’intéresse aux artistes qui choisissent la problématique de l’exil pour mettre en scène un questionnement identitaire ontologique ou à ceux qui, ayant eux-mêmes subi ou choisi l’exil, transforment leur propre exil en un exercice d’espoir dans un double m...

Abstract

Youth and the Politics of the Present presents a range of topical sociological investigations into various aspects of the everyday practices of young adults in different European contexts. Indeed, this volume provides an original and provocative investigation of various current central issues surrounding the effects of globalization and the directions in which Western societies are steering their future. Containing a wide range of empirical and comparative examples from across Europe, this title highlights how young adults are trying to implement new forms of understanding, interpretation and action to cope with unprecedented situations; developing new forms of relationships, identifications and belonging while they experience new and unprecedented forms of inclusion and exclusion. Grounding this exploration is the suggestion that careful observations of the everyday practices of young adults can be an excellent vantage point to grasp how and in what direction the future of contemporary Western societies is heading. Offering an original and provocative investigation, Youth and the Politics of the Present will appeal to students and researchers interested in fields such as Youth Studies, Globalization Studies, Migration Studies, Gender Studies and Social Policy.

Abstract

In Migrants and City-Making Ayşe Çağlar and Nina Glick Schiller trace the participation of migrants in the unequal networks of power that connect their lives to regional, national, and global institutions. Grounding their work in comparative ethnographies of three cities struggling to regain their former standing — Mardin, Turkey; Manchester, New Hampshire; and Halle/Saale, Germany — Çağlar and Glick Schiller challenge common assumptions that migrants exist on society’s periphery, threaten social cohesion, and require integration. Instead Çağlar and Glick Schiller explore their multifaceted role as city-makers, including their relationships to municipal officials, urban developers, political leaders, business owners, community organizers, and social justice movements.

Abstract

The processes of migration and health are inextricably linked in complex ways, with migration impacting on the mental and physical health of individuals and communities. Health itself can be a motivation for moving or a reason for staying, and migration can have implications on the health of those who move, those who are left behind, and the communities that receive migrants. This volume brings together some of the increasing number of researchers who are studying health and migration in Asia - a continent which is a major exporter and importer of human resources. Using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, the essays included in this work investigate the interdisciplinary issues of health and health-related behaviours in the field of migration. Comprehensive and scholarly, Migration and Health in Asia also covers major themes such as the pandemics of HIV/AIDS and SARS, differential access to health and civil society for migrants, and the health of the populations who are left behind.

Abstract

Que signifie être indien et migrant en Amérique, au début du XXIe siècle ? L’ampleur des migrations indiennes mexicaines au cours des dernières décennies et la mise en place au Mexique de politiques de reconnaissance donnent à la question une actualité particulière. Cet ouvrage suit des femmes et des hommes identités comme Indiens qui se sont d’abord installés à Mexico avant d’émigrer aux États-Unis, sans titre de séjour, dans le Wisconsin. Il s’interroge sur le poids de l’expérience de l’altérité sur les projets migratoires. Pourquoi, alors que les communautés d’origine constituent une ressource pour émigrer, de nombreux migrants cherchent à s’en éloigner une fois aux États-Unis ? Dans cette gestion de la différence ethno-raciale, quel est le rôle des contextes locaux et d’une expérience migratoire intergénérationnelle, articulant migration interne et internationale ? Quel soutien les migrants trouvent-ils malgré tout dans leur communauté d’origine et comment les frontières de celle-ci se redessinent-elles au fil des mobilités ? Quelles stratégies développent-ils face au racisme et quels apprentissages transposent-ils d’une société à l’autre ? Attentive à l’intersection des rapports sociaux de classe, d’ethnicité, de genre et de statut migratoire, l’enquête s’approche au plus près du vécu quotidien des migrants. Elle montre que les populations indiennes sont emblématiques des formes contemporaines de la migration : naviguant dans des contextes sociétaux distincts, elles s’adaptent en permanence à la diversité des régimes d’altérité.

Abstract

Le rapport des syndicats à l'immigration pose la question des frontières de la solidarité. Longtemps les organisations syndicales ont hésité entre solidarité internationale et protection de l'emploi national. Aujourd'hui, de nombreux syndicats, tant aux États-Unis qu'en Europe, ne réclament plus des mesures de restriction de l'immigration, mais cherchent à syndiquer les travailleurs immigrés. Situé au cœur de l'Europe, le Luxembourg se caractérise par un marché du travail fortement internationalisé : 27 % des emplois sont occupés par des immigrés et 44 % par des travailleurs frontaliers qui résident dans un pays voisin et travaillent au Luxembourg. Or, alors que les obstacles à la syndicalisation des immigrés sont fréquemment soulignés, le Luxembourg fournit l'exemple d'une relative réussite dans la représentation syndicale d'un marché du travail internationalisé. Cet ouvrage analyse la syndicalisation des travailleurs migrants au Luxembourg pour en tirer des conclusions quant aux possibilités de renouvellement du syndicalisme et éclairer les enjeux du rapport des syndicats aux travailleurs migrants. Combinant enquête de terrain, démarche historique et données statistiques, l'auteur met en évidence la pluralité des stratégies déployées par les syndicats pour syndiquer les travailleurs migrants, en fonction de la diversité des configurations migratoires. En soulignant les contradictions entre la rhétorique de la coopération transfrontalière et les logiques de concurrence entre territoires et salariés, cet ouvrage interroge aussi les acquis et les limites de l'européanisation de l'action syndicale.
