The aftermath

preliminary probes of their determination convincingly, Sikh militants may have taken this inaction as a signal that the British would not act forcefully to stop them if they took matters into their own hands. When the violence came, it prompted mass migration in both directions. Mountbatten’s press secretary, Alan Campbell-Johnson, accompanied the viceroy on a trip taken with Nehru and Patel to view the mass

and separated the region’s inhabitants. The burgeoning field of borderlands studies has only recently begun to deal in detail with Punjab. This chapter builds on recent work in other borderlands, particularly scholarship on Bengal, to describe and analyse the development of the Punjabi boundary and the territory surrounding it. Beginning with the violence and mass migration

in Borders and conflict in South Asia
Orla McGarry

Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are relative newcomers to the superdiversity associated with the contemporary age of mass migration. 4 As a result, the discourse of social inclusion is relatively underdeveloped. In particular, there is a lack of understanding of the processes through which younger members of ethnic and religious minorities negotiate their positions in contemporary Irish society. For young migrants and members of ethnic minority communities, negotiation of inclusion in contemporary Ireland can be a challenging process. Young

middle and upper classes. ‘Americanization’ brought heightened individualism and consumer culture as new ‘positive content’ for self-formation. 102 Globalization brought exposure to New Ageism, Eastern philosophies and spiritualities and therapeutic discourses. 103 Mass migration from the FSU in the 1990s of people who grew up in an atheistic or culturally Christian context also had an impact on available resources for self-formation. 104 This generationally ‘new content’ is somewhat obscured by the long intertwining of Western liberal and traditional Jewish culture

Public ownership in urgent political perspective
Thomas M. Hanna

in the United States and much of Europe is once again shifting importantly, throwing up new challenges to which public ownership may in part be a solution. In a turbulent new era marked by wars, mass migrations, fiscal retrenchment, decaying social protection, terrorism, financial instability, rampant inequality, and looming ecological calamity, once again understanding the possibilities, pitfalls, and potential applications of public ownership will be critical to making sense of – and coming to grips with – a world in kaleidoscopic motion. Written off for so long

most of all in extremist (and mainstream) discourses that inflame and stoke anti-Muslim attitudes and thus allow the Union to slide to the right.129 All the above evokes doomsday forecasts, particularly because Muslim and Arab population growth in the countries of origin which is presently described as uncontrolled might be checked, but only by 2050. With millions of youngsters only now entering their prime childbearing years, their progeny will inevitably resort to mass migration, most probably to Europe.

years in Europe, and much longer in the USA, there has been the phenomenon of a mass migration of people from continental areas with high demographic rates and scarce, if any, development, desperately seeking the advantages of belonging to a ‘prized’ citizenship. This situation has led to a mass of economically and politically very weak people who are de facto excluded from the actual enjoyment of nearly every sort of right

of growth are shared, than the effect of that growth on the planet and therefore people. In short, there is no limit to how big the worker’s flat screen TV should be for a social democrat. There are two problems with this. First climate change always affects the poor most. Their houses tend to be in places that flood, they are more likely to be affected by droughts and crop failures that lead to both rising prices and mass migration, to the detriment of the poor who are moving, and the poor in places they move to, and they tend to live nearer roads and industrial

in mass migration; and the illegal trafficking of drugs and people represent some of the many challenges to the principle of non-interference, and as such to the very bases upon which East Asia has built its networks of relations since 1945. This chapter proposes that the potential for a shift in the regional approach to security lies precisely in these areas of interest, and

development?” “Muslim invasion?” Emphasis on territorial defenses? Hungary also played a prominent role in the drama of mass migration from Africa and the Middle East which has shaken Europe since 2015. On this issue, Hungary took a much more defiant stance against the EU, engaging in a drawn-out conflict with mostly Western EU members over refugee admission
