context young players in Ghana encounter as they try to turn their ambitions into reality. Moreover, we seek to reveal a range of lesser-known actors that play a key role in the circulation of talent within football's GPN. In doing so, we utilise the concept of social infrastructure to generate a more grounded and relational understanding of African football migration that is attuned to the interplay between the subjectivities of a multitude of actors within the football industry and global and local processes of socio-economic change

out his task using a technology developed by the military: the drone. With the drone as medium, Degnbol offers an alternative way of looking at migration, from above. With its ambiguous and distancing gaze on the humanitarian crises unfolding across the borders of Europe, he found the drone uniquely capable of mediating the scale and dehumanisation of European migration politics. Accordingly, Degnbol named his ongoing drone project Europe’s New Borders , 1 a photo series showing guarded borders, crossing points, camps, shelters, and emptied sites, all from the

2 Labour migration policy theory – the state of the art Introduction What do we know about government policies in Europe over labour migration, and how can we understand the ways they have changed so dramatically in Europe since the late 1990s? This chapter interrogates the literature on policy theory and labour migration, building on various approaches and ideas to develop a novel way of looking at policymaking. The chapter has three main aims: first, to critically examine existing theories of migration policy-making and evaluate their accounts of the policy

Introduction Death and suffering of migrants at Europe’s borders ‘has become one of the defining moral and political issues of our time’ ( Steinhilper & Gruijters 2018 : 515). Since 2015 migration has been on the agenda of most meetings of the European Council and ‘how Europe deals with … these multiple crises will shape the future of the Union and the continent’ ( Laffan

Introduction Europe has long been the destination of mixed-migration flows. 1 Since the early 2000s, the regulation of these flows has been at the core of EU policies vis-à-vis neighbouring countries. The ENP promoted regional economic integration and institutional convergence alongside the hardening of its external borders and more stringent

4 Migration, cosmopolitanism and ‘global citizenship’ from the 1990s The quest for ‘lifestyle’ in two generations I exist now in a state of limbo. I’ve lived in New Zealand for nearly four years, which my Wellington friends assure me is no time at all. I still have an English accent and gravitate without intention to other English people. But I don’t feel English any more. I don’t read the English news or support England against New Zealand in sport. I knew more about the All Blacks than I did about the British Lions on their recent tour, but I’m still not a

Migrant geographies and European politics of irregular migration Globalisation is frequently thought to cause an unbounded movement of capital, people, information, culture and goods. However, there is an often neglected flip side to this globalised mobility: the increased international collaboration on border controls aimed at restricting the movements of people who have been forced to migrate because of war, destitution, persecution or environmental reasons. This securitisation of borders constructs categories of included and excluded populations; and the

‘The Arab world is now in what may be termed the Saudi epoch in modern Arab history.’ Muhammad Hasanayn Haykal ( al-Anwar , 20–23 May 1977) Earlier in this book, we analysed in detail the extent to which the short-term migration of Egyptian professional staff featured into the workings of the Arab Cold War and Egypt–Israel rivalry, thereby constituting an instrument of Egyptian soft power in the 1954–70 period

‘For spirit and adventure’
Author: Angela McCarthy

Between 1921 and 1965, Irish and Scottish migrants continued to seek new homes abroad. This book examines the experience of migration and settlement in North America and Australasia. It goes beyond traditional transnational and diasporic approaches, usually focused on two countries, and considers a range of destinations in which two migrant groups settled. The book aims to reclaim individual memory from within the broad field of collective memory to obtain 'glimpses into the lived interior of the migration processes'. The propaganda relating to emigration emanating from both Ireland and Scotland posited emigration as draining the life-blood of these societies. It then discusses the creation of collective experiences from a range of diverse stories, particularly in relation to the shared experiences of organising the passage, undertaking the voyage out, and arriving at Ellis Island. The depiction at the Ellis Island Museum is a positive memory formation, emphasising the fortitude of migrants. Aware that past recollections are often shaped by contemporary concerns, these memories are also analysed within the broader context in which remembering takes place. The book then examines migrant encounters with new realities in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada. The formal nature of ethnic and national identities for Irish and Scottish migrants, as exhibited by language, customs, and stereotypes, is also explored. The novelty of alleged Irish and Scottish characteristics emphasised in accounts presumably goes some way to explaining the continued interest among the children of migrants. These ongoing transnational connections also proved vital when migrants considered returning home.
