Families caring across borders : migration, ageing, and transnational caregiving by Loretta Baldassar( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Families Caring Across Borders provides an ethnographic account of migrants and refugees who live in Australia and their experiences and practices of transnational caregiving of parents in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and New Zealand. This timely work contributes rich, detailed knowledge of how people respond to a world characterised by unprecedented mobility - both voluntary and forced - globalised job markets and an ageing population, as increasing numbers of families find themselves spread across the globe and caring for elderly parents from a distance."--Jacket

Without denying the difficulties that confront migrants and their distant kin, this volume highlights the agency of family members in transnational processes of care, in an effort to acknowledge the transnational family as an increasingly common family form and to question the predominantly negative conceptualisations of this type of family
Refugee protection and the role of law : conflicting identities by Susan Kneebone( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty years on from the signing of the Refugee Convention, forced migration and refugee movements continue to raise global concerns for hosting states and regions, for countries of origin, for humanitarian organisations on the ground, and, of course, for the refugee. This edited volume is framed around two themes which go to the core of contemporary 'refugeehood': protection and identity. It analyses how the issue of refugee identity is shaped by and responds to the legal regime of refugee protection in contemporary times. The book investigates the premise that there is a narr
Chinese migration to Europe : Prato, Italy and beyond( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through an analysis of Chinese migration to Europe, this volume examines the most pressing migration and integration issues facing many societies today, from the political and policy-based challenges of managing increasingly diverse communities, to individual lived experiences of identity and belonging.In addition to chapters on the UK, France and Italy, the book spotlights one of the most extraordinary examples of Chinese migration to Europe: that provided by the city of Prato, just 20km from Florence in Tuscany, Italy. Renowned for its historic textile industry, Prato is now home to one of the largest populations of Chinese residents in Europe, a phenomenon that is remarkable not only for its magnitude but also for the speed with which it has developed.This edited collection, which brings together twenty-seven separate contributors, deepens our understanding of the case of Prato within the context of Chinese migration to the new Europe"--

Migration as transnational interaction Italy re-visited by Loretta Baldassar( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years there have been great advances in the incorporation of ItalianAustralian studies into Italian studies. These include studies of literature, migration and contemporary culture. At the same time, however, there seems to be no consensus among Italianists as to the place ItalianAustralian studies should have in the curriculum. Traditionally, most departments of Italian have focused on the language, history and culture of Italy. My view is that Departments of Italian only stand to gain if they incorporate the study of Italo-Australia, and, by extension, those other ltalies created by migration

The fear of diversity by Loretta Baldassar( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

O'Connor's book is an important and significant contribution to ItalianAustralian historical studies. The integrity of the data, comprising careful and thorough research of (to date) untapped archival material, parliamentary papers, state records, letters and interviews, is matched by the book's readability. O'Connor relates information with intelligence, impartiality and sensitivity not only bringing to light but bringing to life the experiences of early Italian settlers inSouth Australia. The book goes a long way to rectifying the dearth of information in published form on this subject
