Ma(r)king solidarity boundaries towards migrants

Re-Place team member Amandine Desille co-edited the latest Special Issue of the journal Partecipazione & Conflitto entitled “Ma(r)king solidarity boundaries towards migrants. Individual, local and transnational experiences”. This collection explores markers of solidarity with people on the move, at the subnational and transnational levels, and in various contexts, including in the Re-Place partnering countries Italy and Portugal.

As we claim in the introduction to the issue, “The relational embeddedness of a broad variety of solidarity ‘makers’ with an equally diverse range of people on the move in different settings that this Social Issue explores leaves us with a complex, yet we believe more accurate, nuanced and needed insight into the shapes and forms that solidarity can take, and how we can research it while also being part of it”.

The full issue is available in open access at
