The book coheres around a series of case studies and theoretical debates. Immigration and the presence of migrants and refugees appear in this book, both as an objective medium through which the reorganisation of the European Union (EU) and Greece can be observed and analysed and as a conceptual tool for the purpose of contesting political narratives, ideological perceptions of otherness and illegality.
