Summary
This highly original volume, based on empirical case studies from across sub-Saharan Africa, provides fresh insights into the unexpected changes, complex agency and persistent dynamism entailed in displacement processes. In doing so, it explores the diversity of actors, strategies and practices that reshape the world in the face (and chronic aftermath) of dramatic moments of violent dislocation and/or enclosure. An important contribution to a topic of growing scholarly and policy interest
