"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

Transnational families, migration and the circulation of care : understanding mobility and absence in family life ( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. It re-conceptualizes transnational careas a set of activities that circulates between home and host countries - across generations - and fluctuates over the life course, going beyond a focus

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 ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 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 narrowing of protection space in many countries and many highly visible incidents of refoulement. It argues that 'Protection', which is a core focus of the Refugee Convention, appears to be under threat, as there are many gaps and inconsistencies in practice. Contributors to the volume, who include Erika Feller, Elspeth Guild, Hélène Lambert and Roger Zetter, look at the relevant issues from the perspective of a number of different disciplines including law, politics, sociology, and anthropology. The chapters examine the link between identity and protection as a basis for understanding how the Refugee Convention has been and is being applied in policy and practice. The situation in a number of jurisdictions and regions in Europe, North America, South East Asia, Africa and the Middle East is explored in order to ask the question does jurisprudence under the Refugee Convention need better coordination and how successful is oversight of the Convention?"--
