Migrants’ anchoring in an age of insecurity

This monograph argues that well-established concepts in migration studies such as ‘settlement’ and ‘integration’ do not sufficiently capture the features of adaptation and settling of contemporary migrants. Instead, it proposes the integrative and transdisciplinary concept of anchoring, linking the notions of identity, adaptation and settling while overcoming the limitations of the established concepts and underlining migrants’ efforts at recovering their feelings of security and stability. Drawing on 80 in-depth interviews with Polish migrants in the UK and Ukrainian migrants in Poland, ethnographic and autobiographical research together with an analysis of Internet blogs and forums, the book presents the author’s original concept of anchoring, underpinned by a combination of sociological and psychological perspectives, as well as demonstrating its applications. The book aims not only to provide a theoretical and methodological contribution to better understanding and examining the processes of adaptation and settling among today’s migrants, but also to highlight practical implications useful for the better support of individuals facing changes and challenges in new, complex and fluid societies.

problems deflected Henry VIII’s natural tendency toward expansionism, but by 1540, near the end of his reign, he was prepared for further English aggrandizement. By 1640, the course of English overseas colonization was set. This first century of tentative and uncoordinated efforts would see the English becoming masters of a territorial and commercial empire that stretched from a united British archipelago to possessions in North America, the Caribbean, and even India. 3 This chapter considers the context of Elizabethan settlement in Ireland by

any number of other reliance systems, and vice versa. Reliance systems also always exist somewhere, even if that place is virtual. An effective analytical framework for reliance systems must be able to understand how, in the words of the late geographer Edward Soja, ‘it all comes together’ in space and place, or more precisely, in human settlements. 1 In virtually every society on earth, there are ideologies that primarily adhere to reliance systems when they come together in space and place. These ideologies can be as deeply ingrained in political

settlement strategy which eliminated the oversights inherent in the 1917 legislation. Determined to maintain strong and effective central leadership in reconstruction planning, dominion policy makers were mindful that the new soldier settlement legislation could provide an important supplement to Canada’s reactivated immigration and development strategy. However, the war had transformed Canadian society

Settlement of disputes under general international law It might seem that the settlement of disputes is a topic that should be addressed in specialised texts, rather than in a general textbook on the law of the sea. There is, however, good reason for offering an overview of dispute settlement at this point. At the heart of the UNCLOS III package deal was an essential

treatment of women and the lack of international significance attached to women’s lives explain this omission. Even where women are major actors in an international incident, this reality is rarely identified in dispute settlement. For example, transborder refugee flows frequently both provoke, and are the consequence of, international disputes, but although women constitute large numbers of refugees, 4 they do not figure

the political settlements in Bosnia, Kosovo and, to a lesser extent, Macedonia. It is worth considering the prospects for the long-term success of the Alliance’s objectives of underwriting military security in the region while at the same time upholding the norms aimed at developing democratic states with multicultural identities that lay at the heart of these settlements. This chapter will examine the international attempts

explicitly linked (‘moored’) to the structures and processes of power and inequality, whereas Back ( 2015 ) notes that the promotion of superdiversity may contribute to social anxieties and tensions. The concept of integration might be also challenged from the perspective of changing migration processes. In the face of contemporary mobility accompanied by the processes of globalisation and technological advancement, two classic models of migration – settlement and temporary, with the former particularly constituting conditions for integration – have
