Ukrainian Migration and the European Union: Dynamics, Subjectivity, and Politics

Front Cover
Springer, 2016 M02 3 - 194 pages
This book discusses the question of migration in the highly topical context of Ukraine. Building on existing literature and drawing on a rich variety of empirical data and field research, the author addresses migration by Ukrainian nationals into the European Union (EU), and how and why people leave or stay in Ukraine. In doing so, he explores the imaginations, life-stories, aspirations and life-projects of Ukrainian migrants. Vollmer also considers questions of subjectivity, the self and the construction of narratives, and contributes more widely to the significant academic and political debates surrounding Ukrainian migration in the EU.
