About this book

This book aims to decipher the complex web of structural, institutional and cultural contradictions which shape the inclusion-exclusion dialectic and the multifaceted grid within which the 'us' becomes the 'other' and the 'other' becomes the 'us'. It looks at how international migrants in Europe transform from legal subjects into legal abjects.

She has extensively researched and written widely on southern European societies and politics for twenty years with a focus on migration, ethnic minorities, gender issues and citizenship. She is the leading coordinator of the project RAGE, 'Hate Speech and Anti-Populist Othering in Europe through the Racism, Age, Gender Looking Glass', funded by the European Commission. Gabriella is also directing the British case in another multi-country EU funded project on E-engagement and violence, as well as the Greek case in yet another project, 'Pathways to Power: The Political Representation of Citizens of Immigrant Origin in Seven European Democracies', funded by the EU and ESRC.

Reviews

"A timely and important contribution to our understanding of migration in Europe. It summarizes, encapsulates and analyzes this complex and rapidly changing topic in a wholly readable way. Policy makers and students as well as experts will find this a very helpful book for understanding the various issues. This book will be the key migration text for the coming years." - Claire Wallace, University of Aberdeen, UK

"Drawing on three decades of experience in researching migrant groups, Lazaridis offers a masterly overview of the ways in which migration regimes have been restructured and of what this means for different types of people ranging from skilled migrants to trafficked asylum seekers. This book provides much food for thought and should be widely welcomed by migration researchers across the social sciences." - Allan Findlay, University of St Andrews, UK
