Praise for "The Transnationalized Social Question"
Praise for "The Transnationalized Social Question" by Thomas Faist
"Thomas Faist has provided a brilliant and valuable reflection on several issues of the current debates in social sciences with this book: not only migration as an increasing selective form of human mobility, but also social inequalities, North-South relations on a global scale, transnational social protection, the environmental issues. Faist, among several other relevant topics, addresses convincingly the crucial role of location and borders for social inequalities, the rising cultural conflicts beyond socio-economic cleavages, the design of internal boundaries as forms of domination and exclusion. This book will remain a cornerstone of the intellectual debate on the relationship between international migrations and the main social issues of our time, and I hope it will become an essential guide for the new generation of social scientists." - Professor Maurizio Ambrosini, University of Milan
"The transnationalized social question is a remarkable and very original book, analyzing migration movements between the Global South and the Global North from the point of view of social gaps. Exit, as a response to global inequalities, takes place in a world where social inequalities between countries are stronger than inequalities inside the countires. Cross border migration is a crucial field for understabnding social inequalities in the context of transnationalization of labour and global asymetries. The choice of Thomas Faist to explore the whole migration complex through the transnational approach of social questions is a brillant renewal of research. The final claim towards researchers to engage in the public sphere is an urgent request when decision makers are difficultly agreeing with them on the solutions." - Professor Catherine Wihtol de Wenden, Directrice de recherche CNRS, Sciences Po, Paris
