Beschreibungen

This book interrogates the persistence of Roma and migrant segregation in camps in order to understand how the creation of temporary enclosures can lead to enduring marginalisation. Persistent temporariness has been widely acknowledged as a common aspect of these camps, yet it remains largely under-theorised. Gaja Maestri unpacks the notion of camp persistence to delineate its different regimes and to investigate contributing factors. In order to do so, she develops a comparison between Italy and France and offers a new theorisation of the camp as a site of contentious politics, where the interaction between governmental and non-governmental actors produces different temporal arrangements and forms of segregation.

Temporary Camps, Enduring Segregation will be of interest to scholars of political sociology, European comparative politics, and urban geography, specifically to those in the field of camp studies, racial segregation, Romani studies, and urban social movements. 
Gaja Maestri is Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Media, Communication and Sociology, University of Leicester, UK.
