However, she believed she suffered discrimination as a Polish national. She was consulted by a Polish trainee doctor even though there was no such need regarding language. This doctor was neither in charge of important decisions nor had sufficient knowledge. It proved to be very difficult within the Norwegian healthcare system because the procedure available was not what

migrant from the rural and indigenous south, especially in the 1950s and 1960s entailed precarious and very arduous employment. When arriving in the Chilean capital, men were mostly employed on construction sites, in bakeries, in meat factories and public maintenance, while women worked as live-in housemaids from a very young age. 7 The fatigue of the long working hours, the discrimination, and the abuses suffered were not always discussed within the family, and frequently indigenous migrants concealed

And the minority model emphasizes the discrimination suffered by the disabled and deals with their struggle for rights alongside other minority groups ( Retief and Letšosa, 2018 ).

wider scope of analysis.19 Practices of sorting bodies, or of specifically treating corpses, body parts, and human remains, thus appear in most of the cases presented in our volume. These ways of dealing with issues of purity and danger, while producing mass crime, reveal astonishing and strong symbolic oppositions, with structuralist resonances to these sorting practices. Thus, in post-revolutionary Iran, religious and ideological discriminations have been enacted in the treatment of corpses of political opponents and their burial, in contexts in which the state and

Lincopi 2015 : 110). Moving through these borders, bringing back to the present the story of why migration was necessary and even forced, can often become a gateway to pain. It is not surprising that in telling the stories of Mapuche families who inhabited the city at different times, one frequently encounters the casualisation of labour, abuse and discrimination. Torn between survival, exploitation and mutual support networks, one generation after another had to negotiate over and over again

Concepts and methods Care (including transnational care) has to be understood both as a resource and as relational practice (Buch 2015 ). Hromadžić and Palmberger ( 2018 : 5) argue that ‘transnational and migratory settings do not necessarily diminish but rather transform caregiving relationships and practices within and outside

Fans of Hamburg club St Pauli, for instance, show that ultras can be involved in anti-discrimination activities and campaigns, and promote a motto ‘gegen Deutschland’ (‘against Germany’); another example is Ajax Amsterdam fans participating in a demonstration in support of immigrants. Many more are overly focused on local identity and this structures countless interactions (Kossakowski, 2013; Doidge, 2015a). The heterogeneity of ultras is

individuals and families still lived at the old campus. These individuals made up the majority of the workers at the College, employed in its various sections. As an official policy of the College dating back its early days, caste discrimination is prohibited; everyone drinks from the same wells and those who use the mess area eat from the same pot. Such policies, as noted above, have led to antagonism with the nearby village of Tilonia, where caste separation is still practised, most notably in the tea shops where lower castes are provided with disposable cups rather than
