Martin Lemberg-Pedersen, Sharla M. Fett, Lucy Mayblin, Nina Sahraoui et Eva Magdalena Stambøl (Eds.), Postcoloniality and forced migration : mobility, control, agency, Bristol, UK : Bristol University Press, coll. « Global Migration and Social Change », août 2022 - 246 p.

This powerful book explicates the many ways in which colonial encounters continue to shape forced migration, ever evolving with times and various geographical contexts.

Bringing historians, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists and criminologists together, the book presents examples of forced migration events and politics ranging from the 18th century to the practices and geopolitics of the present day. These case studies, covering Europe, Africa, North America, Asia and South America, are then put in dialogue with each other to propose new theoretical and real-world agendas for the field.

As the pervasive legacies of colonialism continue to shape global politics, this unprecedented book moves beyond critique, ahistoricity and Eurocentrism in refugee and forced migration studies and establishes postcoloniality and forced migration as an important field of migration research.
