Project description

Scholars in citizenship studies have sought out more inclusive terminology for the growing population of illegalized migrants in the EU. This research project examines how squats allow for alternative articulations and practices of citizenship in European cities. The project will conduct a systematic comparative analysis of urban migration governance in Paris and Rome through ethnographic fieldwork in migrant squats.
