An excellent book by Prof. Asli Vatansever and the subsequent discussion with scholars based in Finland, Germany, and Italy, on the social expectations and theorietical conceptualizations of refugeehood, exile, and nomadic life. This is an extremely important contribution to what it means being an at-risk scholar nowadays in societies where the academic sector is per se relying on precarious work.
