Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The chapter introduces the central concepts of the book, and sets out why it is important to consider global conflicts within a climate of changing media use, as well as distrust towards governments and other official organisations. It also flags the importance of considering how people are made into ‘migrants’ by the state, members of society as well as through informal and often contradictory demands to integrate, and simultaneously to feel that one’s status is precarious. It sets out the key findings and methods used in the research project which formed the basis of the book, and outlines the structure of the book.
