Issues of displacement and dispossession have become defining characteristics of a globalised 21st century. People are moving within and across national borders, whether displaced, relocated or moving in search of better livelihoods.
This book brings theoretical understandings of migration and displacement together with empirical illustrations of the creative, cultural ways in which communities reflect upon their experiences of change, and how they respond, including through poetry and story-telling, photography and other art forms, exploring the scope for building communities of solidarity and social justice.
The concluding chapters identify potential implications for policy and professional practice to promote communities of solidarity, addressing the structural causes of widening inequalities, taking account of different interests, including those related to social class, gender, ethnicity, age, ability and faith.
Introduction;
Explaining displacement;
Violence and the fear of violence;
Development and redevelopment;
Taking account of market pressures;
Moving by ‘choice?;
Policy implications;
Towards conclusions.

"Highly topical and rich in creative ideas on how to increase solidarities, this book will provide an inspiration to those promoting social cohesion" Ines Newman, Visiting Senior Research Fellow, De Montfort University, and author of Reclaiming local democracy (Policy Press, 2014)

"In an international context of change and volatility, this book presents an important resource for policy makers, practitioners and activists. Most importantly, it presents the reader with the voices of displaced people themselves." Mae Shaw, University of Edinburgh
