The Gulf is a major global destination for migrant workers, with a majority of these workers coming from South Asia. In this book, a team of international contributors examine the often-overlooked complex governance of this migration corridor.
Going beyond state-centric analysis, the contributors present a multi-layered account of the ‘migration governance complex.’ They offer insights not only into the actors involved in the different components of migration governance, but also into the varying ways of interpreting and explaining the meaning and value of these interactions. Together, they enable readers to better understand migration in this important region, while also providing a model for analyzing global migration governance in practice in different parts of the world.

The emotional and affective turn is currently transforming a broad range of disciplines in the social sciences and beyond. It constitutes a fundamental shift in social scientific debates. This is reflected in an ever-growing output of research – an immense range of books, edited volumes and journal articles that is increasingly difficult to overlook. This is especially so for social scientists and humanities scholars working on emotions
