apologies for cross postings.


a new blog on migration, past and present, in all its forms -  
refugee, diaspora, exile, return, temporary, labour, tourist - and  
related issues of identity and community organisation

Our mission: to provide a moderated forum for sharing ideas,  
impressions, commentaries, reactions, and announcements from scholars  
alongside community voices. Submissions to Inter-sections might  
include text, sound, images or video and can be any length from one  
paragraph to a working paper (suggested length: 1000-1500 words). The  
site is intended not as a peer-reviewed journal, but as a community  
resource and space for dialogue.

reflections on and reactions to Recent Public Events on migration.
