Book Description

20 Jun 2014
Undocumented migration is a huge global phenomenon, yet little is known about the reality of life for those involved. Sans Papiers combines a contemporary account of the theoretical and policy debates with an in-depth exploration of the lived experiences of undocumented migrants in the UK from Zimbabwe, China, Brazil, Ukraine and Turkish Kurdistan.

Built around their voices, the book provides a unique understanding of migratory processes, gendered experiences and migrant aspirations. Moving between the uniqueness of individual experience and the search for commonalities, the book explores the ambiguities and contradictions of being an undocumented migrant.

With its insights into personal experiences alongside analysis of wider policy issues, Sans Papiers will have wide appeal for students, academics, policy-makers and practitioners.

Product Description


This is an important book on a subject of great public importance. Bloch, Sigona and Zetter's work is unique, because it is based on interviews with 75 young undocumented migrants. (Professor Stephen Castles, Research Chair in Sociology, University of Sydney)

The authors enlighten our understanding of what it is like to be young and undocumented in increasingly hostile contexts. Rich and nuanced, this book sheds light on these immigrants' exclusion, exploitation and disappointments, but also on their resilience, resourcefulness, and hopes. A must read for anyone interested in what really lies behind policy debates about immigration today. (Cecilia Menjivar is Cowden Distinguished Professor, Associate Director at T Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, Arizona State University and author of Enduring Violence, Ladina Women's Lives in Guatemala, University of California Press (2011))
