Abstract

'Rising China' - the nation, the notion, and the buzzword - sparks dreams and triggers fears. Borders that were closed during the Cold War era have again become zones of contact and exchange. At the same time, security concerns remain high, territorial disputes still loom large. In this context, engaging in everyday neighbouring relations has become a necessity for those living in these zones of contact and exchange. The experiences and realities of relation-making across China's borders shape life in profound and lasting ways.

Abstract

In March 2014, the e-mail&#xD;list of the European Academic Network on Romani&#xD;Studies1 hosted a discussion on definitions of the population known as ‘Roma’.&#xD;It began when one of the subscribers to the list – which at the time brought&#xD;together some 350 academics who specialised in Romani/Gypsy studies – asked&#xD;for reactions to two generalisations which she came across while preparing a&#xD;legal review of a document on cultural rights: (1) that all Roma speak a variety&#xD;of the same language, Romanes; and (2) that Roma generally consider themselves&#xD;to be a nation. Some two-dozen&#xD;scholars posted their reactions, which&#xD;together offer a fairly exhaustive summary of contemporary views on the subject

Abstract

Western military presence wanes in Afghanistan and a transformed security environment challenges borders and stability in Central Asia. This book examines how the tensions relating to the reorganization of external military presence interact with regional states’ ambitions and challenge the borders already contested by numerous dividing lines. It studies a complex political landscape across which radical Islam connected with international terrorism is feared to spread as the international mission initiated in the wake of the 9/11 attacks winds down.&#xD;

Abstract

Esta obra busca comprender las construcciones de sentidos sociales del espacio denominado Araucanía-Norpatagonia. Y es importante destacar que los sentidos no son unívocos. En este caso, la pluralidad de lo territorial se intuye en las diferentes perspectivas de acercamiento, mostrando tanto la polisemia como las tensiones detrás de conceptos tales como espacio, frontera o representación.Para ello, los investigadores y cientistas sociales que escriben este volumen, asumen el debate centro-periferia entendiendo que la particular mirada desarrollada desde un territorio de integración tardía, como es la Patagonia tanto en Argentina como en Chile, construye una mirada epistemológica necesaria y singular.Así, la Patagonia adopta un carácter plural, las naciones se diversifican y los sentidos y prácticas de lo estatal se complejizan. Además, las territorialidades y las subjetividades forman parte de los desafíos que se abordan, reconociéndose como abiertos.

Abstract

Los textos aquí reunidos buscan reflexionar acerca de algunas representaciones, discursos y prácticas que construyen el espacio denominado Patagonia. Para ello, los autores parten de marcos teórico-metodológicos diversos y transdisciplinares como los estudios subalternos, la teoría decolonial, las investigaciones de género, la ética ambiental, la geografía cultural y religiosa y el ecofeminismo. Los temas abordados son: la relación entre cultura-naturaleza como reflexión política; religiosidad de migrantes latinoamericanos en San Carlos de Bariloche; producción de territorialidad a partir de la cartografía colonial; desierto y política pública en la Patagonia.

Abstract

Este libro reúne diversos estudios sobre la población migrante de países latinoamericanos en la Patagonia argentina. Los autores analizan las experiencias y prácticas culturales de estos grupos habitualmente ignorados o invisibilizados por los discursos dominantes, con el objetivo de comprender y aportar al conocimiento de la trama social patagónica. Los estudios abordan cuatro ejes temáticos: los desplazamientos y las dinámicas migratorias; las configuraciones productivas a partir de relaciones laborales, trayectorias familiares y cuestiones de género;las representaciones sociales de experiencias locales y barriales;la construcción de sentidos de pertenencia a partir de prácticas religiosas.

Abstract

While there are many prior studies to date on the internal conflicts in Burma, these are mostly focused on the human rights situation within the country. In addition, many previous marked studies, such as works from Thai academics, International Organizations or the World Health Organization, have highlighted the human securities of migrant workers in the destination country whereby the process of migration has already taken place. However, none of them have focused on the phenomenon of migration in relation to perceptions of borders and human security. The lack of study addressing the influence of borders and human securities as the key indicators to people’s migration behaviour supports the significance and relevance of this research.

Abstract

Il est particulièrement difficile de réaliser une enquête qui voudrait combiner les méthodes ethnologique et statistique. Par définition, même si elles ne sont pas exclusives, l’une est qualitative et l’autre quantitative, l’une comme l’autre essaie de combler leur déficit scientifique et épistémologique, avec plus ou moins de succès. Nous ne prétendons pas ici avoir réussi un mariage harmonieux entre les deux méthodes, mais nous avons fait notre possible pour réaliser des projections chiffrées à partir de nos données de terrain et observations tout en les comparant avec les recherches qui ont été beaucoup plus statistiques. Cette étude veut en effet répondre à certaines questions précises : qui, combien, où et comment ? Nous avons établi des statistiques qui ne peuvent être totalement fiables, mais qui donneront une vision plus réaliste que celle existante. En ce qui concerne les études réalisées par des chercheurs, la réalité de l’immigration est certes abordée, mais non dans sa complexité, c’est-à-dire des formes sociales qui ont permis à cette immigration de devenir aussi importante, de l’incroyable complicité et solidarité des organismes officiels qui masquent les véritables chiffres et des conséquences socioculturelles ; nous sommes en présence d’une population nouvelle de plusieurs millions d’individus qui développent des stratégies d’adaptation que nous étudierons. Les chercheurs se consacrent plutôt aux aspects, non négligeables évidemment, sanitaires, éducatifs et d’identité. De manière générale, c’est la prostitution qui retient le plus souvent leur attention. Celle-ci est plus « porteuse » que l’arrivée et la « gestion » des centaines de milliers de travailleurs birmans embarqués chaque année sur des bateaux de pêche qui sont pourtant régulièrement jetés à la mer ou revendus. Toujours est-il que la capacité de résilience de cette communauté birmane est si forte qu’elle en devient presque un moteur économique de développement du sud de la Thaïlande.
