Summary
"With thousands of migrants attempting the perilous maritime journey from North Africa to Europe each year, transnational migration is a defining feature of social life in the Mediterranean today. On the island of Sicily, where many migrants first arrive and ultimately remain, the contours of migrant reception and integration are frequently animated by broader concerns for human rights and social justice. _Island of Hope_ sheds light on the emergence of social solidarity initiatives and networks forged between ordinary citizens and noncitizens who work together to improve local livelihoods and mobilize for radical political change. Based on years of ethnographic fieldwork with frontline communities in Sicily, anthropologist Megan A. Carney argues that such mobilizations hold significance not only for the rights of migrants, but for the material and affective well-being of society at large"--
