In recent years, exhumation campaigns of mass graves resulting from the armed conflict (1980–2000) between the Maoist guerrillas of PCP-Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso) and the States armed forces have increased in Peru. People in rural Andes, the most marginalised sectors of national society, which were also particularly affected by the war, are the main group concerned with exhumations. This article examines the handling, flow and re-appropriation of exhumed human remains in public space to inform sociopolitical issues underlying the reparation policies implemented by the State, sometimes with the support of human rights NGOs. How do the families of victims become involved in this unusual return of their dead? Have the exhumations become a new repertoire of collective action for Andean people seeking to access their fundamental rights and for recognition of their status as citizens? Finally, what do these devices that dignify the dead reveal about the internal workings of Peruvian society – its structural inequities and racism – which permeate the social fabric?

Human Remains and Violence: An Interdisciplinary Journal
Ernesto Schwartz-Marin and Arely Cruz-Santiago

The article will present the findings of ethnographic research into the Colombian and Mexican forensic systems, introducing the first citizen-led exhumation project made possible through the cooperation of scholars, forensic specialists and interested citizens in Mexico. The coupling evolution and mutual re-constitution of forensic science will be explored, including new forms of citizenship and nation building projects – all approached as lived experience – in two of Latin America‘s most complex contexts: organised crime and mass death.

to navigate their way around unfamiliar social services. Each chapter addresses questions about rights, limitations on citizenship, claims on and different kinds of access to and use of public services in the state sector. While some of those who change country, or move between countries, cross borders voluntarily with the possibility of continued mobility, others – forced migrants and asylum seekers without papers or home to return to – have limited choice. In all cases, however, when people cross borders their circumstances in relation to the rights and

The role of pronatalism in the development of Czech childcare and reproductive health policies

assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs). We trace the framings that were used at different points in time by different actors in public debates, paying special attention to pronatalist framing. We understand framing as a way in which information or an issue is presented in the public discourse to promote a certain problem, definition, or solution. We investigate how the pronatalist framing has been used in policy debates and how it has affected the bodily and sexual citizenship of various women, non-heterosexual people, and persons with ‘other’ nationalities or

Contested boundaries and new solidarities

on what Shellee Colen ( 1995 ) has called stratified reproduction; that is, a system in which labour and social rights are granted or denied based on gender, class, race, and legal status. This is sustained by a border regime (Fassin 2011 ) – both in geo-political and conceptual terms – that reinforces, through the legal system, a model of care that is feminised, precarious, and stratified (Pérez-Orozco 2006 , see also Pine and Haukanes, Chapter 1 , this volume). Drawing on recent literature on citizenship and border regulation (Fassin 2011

being in the world. This could be the intersection of data and citizenship, the relationship between data and bodies or the construction of value in relation to data. They are also asked to identify places of data resistance. At the end of a walk, where the groups have been asked to document their movement with a map, observations, collection of physical objects, they need to tell others a story of their journey. Data walking can be used as a tool for civic engagement (Balastrini 2017), or within a broader set of reflections on specific social or economic processes

different people, for different kinds of bodies, and at different times. As has been repeatedly witnessed over the past century, people who live within a nation's borders as recognised citizens can suddenly find that, overnight, they lose the rights or status of citizenship, the right to live where they have long been settled, and/or the possibility of mobility between different states. One has only to think of the situation of European Jews in the 1930s and 1940s, of the Windrush generation who arrived in the UK from the Caribbean between 1948 and 1970 (and then found in

Deaths at sea and unidentified bodies in Lesbos
Iosif Kovras and Simon Robins

were born in Greece but the family had decided to return to Syria some years before. Their deaths could have been avoided had a new Greek citizenship law – relaxing criteria for the acquisition of Greek citizenship to children of immigrants born in Greece – been implemented (Christopoulos 2012).2 The two girls could have legally entered the country as Greek citizens, instead of risking their lives to cross the militarised border illegally. These three deaths reflect the biopolitical power of the two key instruments of contemporary sovereign states, namely control

Borders, ticking clocks and timelessness among temporary labour migrants in Israel
Robin A. Harper and Hani Zubida

raised families in Israel. Although they live on the periphery of Israeli society, children of some migrants – the Israeli Interior Ministry estimates there are about 1,200 children of migrant workers in Israel and an additional 2,000 of refugees/asylum-seekers – self-identify as Israelis and are being socialised as Israelis through the school system (Zubida et al. 2013). Many are stateless, as there are few means to adjust their status and to claim Israeli citizenship or to claim the citizenship of their parents’ countries of origin. Some 600 are awaiting adjudication

Looking at marriage migration regimes in Austria and Germany through the perspective of women from rural Kosovo
Carolin Leutloff-Grandits

Introduction For most non-EU citizens, marriage migration establishes one of the few possibilities to move to countries within the European Union. Unlike other migration options, in which the citizenship of the migrant and/or the needs of the local labour market are taken as the main measurement for the right to enter the EU and to achieve residency rights within the destination country, the right to family migration is – among other things – bound to the individual membership of the sponsor in society – in legal as well as
