This book is concerned with the effects current European migration policy have on migrants in the Global South and considers alternative ways of looking at the modern migratory phenomenon. Based on in-depth ethnographic research with migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa, Stock considers current migration dynamics from the perspectives of migrants themselves. She examines the long-term social effects of immobility as experienced by migrants who find themselves stuck in transit countries, between their home and anticipated destination. This book will be an invaluable learning resource for those wishing to understand the social and political processes that result from current migration policies, particularly in countries in the Global South.
