Reviews

“Schapendonk’s remarkable book shows how movers are made into and unmake themselves as migrants. It openly defies any attempt at reducing West African trajectories through Europe to received categories and classifications in migration studies.” • Paolo Gaibazzi, Leibniz-Zentrum Moderner Orient

“The book… is an absolutely unique and thought-provoking contribution to current discussions about “migration” – especially from Africa – in Europe.” • Matthieu Bolay, The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva

Description

Studying the im/mobility trajectories of West Africans in the EU, this book presents a new approach to West African migrants in Europe. It argues that a migration lens is not necessarily the best starting point to understand these dynamic im/mobility processes. Rather than seeing migrancy as the primary marker of their lives, this book positions these trajectories in a wider social script of mobility. This book discusses how African migrants are confronted with rigid mobility regimes, but also how they manage to transgress and circumvent them.

Joris Schapendonk is Assistant Professor at the Geography, Planning and Environment department of Radboud University, Nijmegen, and an active member of Nijmegen Centre for Border Research (NCBR). In 2014, he received a personal research grant from the Innovation Research Scheme of the Netherlands Organisation of Scientific Research.
