the literature, this phenomenon is termed the urban happiness paradox . However, the results are, to a large degree, heterogeneous across countries, and the difference between urban and rural subjective well-being can change at different speeds and different directions in different developed countries. New generations and new urban

's category expatriate was neither technical nor straightforward but enmeshed in social and political struggles and riven by internal fault lines. IHRM studies does not simply document matters of business administration but participates in the hierarchical ordering of human movement and labour. Early IHRM literature reveals the imperial genealogy of corporate ‘migratory management’, but also shows modifications in response to political changes. In the 1960s and 1970s, the worldwide success of anti-colonial movements, and rising calls for economic

witnessing violence, oppression, shaming and otherising – or their severe threat. Such experiences destroy the worldview and identity of a person, forcefully interrupt their life course and thus create a pressing need to reformulate one's worldview and identity (see Sztompka, 2004 : 158–62, 171–5). The research material consists of Finnish-language literature that addresses the experiences of border-crossing people in Finland and Russian Karelia, 1 along with the criticism of these works. The memoirs

Since the late 1990s, IHRM literature has noted a diversification of international work and identified a range of alternatives to the ‘traditional expatriate’. Among them, ‘self-initiated expatriates’ are the most widely studied, while ‘inpatriates’ are distinguished from expatriates by their opposite directionality of movement (from subsidiary to headquarters), and debate has arisen over whether (self-initiated) expatriates are ‘migrants’ or not. This chapter interrogates these new categories of IHRM literature and the debates about them, and

adjusted to the urbanised landscape. In other parts, the idea was imported by local residents, the authorities, or by supporting NGOs (see, for example, Alon-​Mozes and Eizenberg, 2018 for their review of Mediterranean Basin forms of urban agriculture). The impressive spread of the phenomenon brought about a similarly intensive surge in research examining it, producing since the wake of the millennium a plethora of articles, books, research groups and guidelines.

book offers a critical reading of international human resource management literature, explores the work and institutional history of the Expatriate Archive Centre in The Hague, and studies the historical and contemporary making of expatriates in Nairobi, Kenya . In doing so, it traces the category's postcolonial history and presence from mid-twentieth-century political decolonisation to today's politics of migration. 3 The book shows the expatriate to be a malleable and mobile category, of shifting meaning and

Borders and images in migration narratives published in Norwegian

, within philosophical hermeneutics, interpretation has come to be seen as a part of being (Gadamer, 1990 ). Not only scholars engage with hermeneutics but also, for example, migrants, as they negotiate the borderscapes they are crossing by constantly creating provisional interpretations of the unfamiliar. The material of discourse analysis consists of inventories of set images, with ‘images’ here not necessarily understood as being visual (cf. Beller, 2007 : 4). In literary studies, and especially comparative literature, the study of such

understandable, there is a risk that right-wing populism will be presented as a rural phenomenon, thereby replicating the kind of spatially fetishistic analyses critiqued by Kipfer and Dikeç ( 2019 ) among others. In this chapter, we offer one small attempt to redress this balance. We do so through bringing together disparate literatures on authoritarian populism, on global suburbanisms
