New book: Migration and identity in a post-National world

Posted on Thursday 10th October 2013

Migration and Identity in a Post-National World by IRiS academic Katie Tonkiss. What does post-national identity mean for the control of migration? Katherine Tonkiss engages with the post-national theory of 'constitutional patriotism' and argues in favour of both post-national identity and relaxed migration controls. She explores the implications of such liberalised migration for the dynamics of identity and belonging in local communities, drawing on qualitative research on Eastern European migration to the UK. Illustrated with rich case study material, this book offers a novel contribution to the post-nationalism literature. The book is published on 27 September and more details can be found here.
