Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the process of globalisation and the international context to the movement of people across borders. It also studies the important role of humiliation in processes that lead to migration, and the humiliation experienced in seeking asylum and refuge. The chapter provides a description of the international network for human dignity and humiliation studies (HDHS), which is slowly gathering force. The chapter shows that the HDHS network is composed of scholars and practitioners from all over the world who want to be involved in creating a different way of being and doing research.
