Ana Margheritis has a new book out with Routledge: Migration Governance Across Regions. Click this link and check out the blurb below:
To what extent emigration policies are effectively engaging citizens abroad with home polities, redefining citizenship, and fostering new forms of transnational governance? Building upon field research done in Ecuador, Uruguay, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil, Ana Margheritis explains the timing, motivations, characteristics, and implications of each country’s outreach efforts, the emergence of a distinctive regional consensus on migration management and citizenship construction, and migrant views in specific localities in Europe. She argues that these outreach efforts resemble courting practices. Courting diasporas is a deliberate expression of the ambivalent, still incipient, and open-ended relationship between states and diasporas which is not exempt of conflict, detours, and setbacks and may (or may not) unfold into stable and fruitful partnerships.
