Out now: My book “Global Migration Governance from below” – discount available

My book “Global Migration Governance from Below: Actors, Spaces, Discourses” has now been published in the Palgrave Pivot series. It builds upon 15 years of participant observation at all levels of migration governance – and it is very much related to this blog. When working on the manuscript, I went back to my blog entries to see what my immediate impressions of these events were, went through documents uploaded here which are now no longer available at their original source and used the interviews and guest contributions. If you are interested in the book, the publisher sent me a flyer which provides a 20 percent discount until September 18, 2022 – you can find it here:

This is the website for the book:


I am very much interested in your feedback on this book! – which, although rather concise, took a long time to finish. This was in part due to the major changes in the global migration governance landscape of the past years which made me revise my original outline (as always, workload, procrastination etc. played a role as well 😉 )

Occasionally, I have added a few personal comments/reflections to the manuscript, something I usually avoid but in a way the book also maps my personal research journey.

Here are some more infos from my editor regarding access to the ebook:

Please  access the book from an institutional connection to see if you  have access to the e-book for free through your  library:


We want to encourage as many individual downloads as possible.

Related to this, it will also be worth checking if your own library has access to your book, and if not, encourage them to purchase it, so that students and peers can download the book for free too. You can flag to your librarians that we have flexible e-book collections now, where institutions can buy 20+ of our titles instead of having to purchase full subject collections, making it much more affordable for smaller budgets: https://www.springernature.com/gp/librarians/products/ebooks.
