Authors: Dr. Megha Amrith (Max Planck Institute) and Dr. Nina Sarahoui (European University Institute)
Commentator: Dr. Annabelle Wilkins (University of Southampton)

This book focuses on migrant employed in sectors of the economy that are typically regarded as marginal or precarious – domestic and care work in private settings, cleaning work in hospitals, call centre labour, the selling of sex – to understand the aspirations and mobilities of migrants in relation to questions of gender and labour.

 

Book title: International Migration and International Security. Why Prejudice is a Global Security Threat
Author: Dr. Valeria Bello (United Nations University Institute on Globalization, Culture & Mobility)
Commentator: Dr. Nando Sigona (University of Birmingham)

Through an interdisciplinary analytic lens that combines emerging debates in the fields of international relations, political science and sociology, Valeria Bello reveals how transnational dynamics have increased extremism, prejudiced attitudes towards others and international xenophobia.
