The Irish in Australia

. International mobility poses particular challenges to belonging. Before migrating, sense(s) of belonging or alterity within family, peer group, local community, nation and the world are constructed along specific socio-spatial axes of differentiation (Brah, 1998). These include gender, ethnicity, class, religion and material circumstances. International migration simultaneously exposes the migrant to unfamiliar axes of differentiation and to new experiences as ‘immigrant’ and ‘other’ in the receiving society. This inevitably has implications for immigrants’ sense of place

uncritically we hope, a number of frames of feminist thinking. First, it draws inspiration from established, second-wave feminist thinking whereby it places women at the centre of accounts of refugee migration and migrants in a bid to discover all the stories that can be told. Second, it aims to show that refugee women’s stories can form the basis of enquiry and add new knowledge and understanding to the existing body of work in contemporary international migration. In doing the first two things, this study presents different ways of envisioning some key concepts used in the

Globalisation, securitisation and control

prompts reflection on the wider political and societal implication of this strand of the ‘fight against terrorism’ discourse. Political and societal implications An important implication of the construction of the ‘migrant’ other as a potential terrorist threat is that it has securitised migration through making possible and further strengthening restrictive migration control practices, which are contributing to the normalisation of a deep-rooted suspicion of foreigners within European societies. The UN ‘International Migration Report’ of 2006 offered support to this

own mini-sending countries within the host countries (‘dish cities’) and pursuing a process perceived and defined as ghettoisation and fostering a parallel society. Host countries’ perceptions of immigrants from poorer places are often coloured by contempt, and Europeans are no exception. Consequently, Muslim migrants are looked down upon. Integration then seems difficult if not remote. Indeed, the Global Commission on International Migration (GCIM) recommended that migrants should leave a host country if they reject the very notion of integration or feel that they
