“There is no doubt that this engaging volume represents a new contribution to the scholarship on migration to the Gulf area and, more specifically, to the South-South migration… All the chapters are solidly based on ethnographic fieldwork or hitherto unexplored primary sources.” • Anna Baldinetti, University of Perugia
Combining visual and literary analyses and original ethnographic studies as part of a more general political reflection, Migration in the Making of Gulf Space examines the role of migrants and non-citizens in the processes of settling in the Arab States of the Gulf region. The contributions underscore the aspirational character of the Gulf as a place where migrant recognition can be attained while also reflecting on practices of exclusion. The book is the result of an interdisciplinary dialogue among scholars and includes an original contribution by the acclaimed author of the novel Temporary People, Deepak Unnikrishnan.
