and kept busy by doing smaller jobs on the side. The combination of social transfer payments and temporary jobs was a relatively dependable, even respectable income, but offered no chance for social advancement. This was very frustrating. Agim felt that he had, in part, suffered discrimination from the German authorities and citizens, which made him angry; while Alban felt marginalised and was pessimistic about his future prospects. Ylber was better off, as he had a permanent job at the railway company. He also did weekend jobs to increase his income. He complained

in multiple frames of reference, importance of gender (Noyes and Popay, 2007 ), other forms of discrimination (Greene, 2004 ), stigma (Isaakidis et al., 2013 ) and severe side-effects, especially for adhering to MDR-TB treatment (Deshmukh et al., 2015 ; Isaakidis et al., 2013 ). Harper's ethnographic work in Nepal also shows how DOTS implementation is complicated by stigma, difficulties in accessing DOTS centres, caste relationships between providers and patients and strong social hierarchies within the health system that do not allow for the suggestion of

appeared as the cause of discrimination against patients and, as a result, became a political issue. As the work of Huyard also demonstrates, such activities led in the US to a lowering of the threshold for clinical trials involving so-called orphan drugs and diseases, and thereby succeeded in transforming ‘uncommon disorders’ into ‘rare diseases’ (Huyard, 2009 ). Rabeharisoa et al. suggest that efforts on the part of patients to make visible the ‘undone science’ of rare disease, based on principles of fairness, equity and social justice, have until recently very much

ethnosexualisation of ‘East European’ women documented in several other West European contexts (Cvajner 2019 ; Lulle and King 2016b ). By paying attention to these b/ordering practices we can recognise continuous sexualisation and discrimination in numerous instances of the work, career, family and social life of migrant women in the free labour market in the EU. Lower economic power and cultural hierarchies stigmatise and orientalise ‘East

‘non-Western background’, particular laws are targeting particular groups of people attached to the concepts. As the ghetto term and legislation are specifically targeting class and ethnicity, it might be in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights for discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin (Open Society Justice Initiative, 2020 ). 5

Indeed, passports are “material evidence of exercising discrimination” (ibid: 3). In fact, before the advance of political modernity, passports were “ devices of privilege which provided recognition for

Racism has become one of the clear areas of focus, yet emotion is strangely absent from analysis of racism in football (Back et al., 1999; King, 2004; Burdsey, 2011; Ratna, 2014; Doidge, 2015a).

across the former Yugoslavia can only be a matter of speculation. Secondary mass graves in Bosnia and Herzegovina   145 However, the concern for numbers has remained something of a constant in this naming game. Connor defined a mass grave as containing more than six bodies, admitting that her discrimination of a ‘multiple burial’ (two to six individuals) from a ‘mass grave’ was arbitrary.9 Haglund presented a view that every grave is unique and different, and he rejected any oversimplifying definition, instead advocating for the number of bodies within the grave to

Individuals who want to maintain their personal, network relations are often forced to think of
