The last decade has witnessed the proliferation of research articles and projects about death in a migratory context — the focus being alternatively on the body of migrants (Lestage, 2019) or on the creation of community through the management of death among (settled) immigrants. This thematic dossier proposes to capture a specific moment — that of death occurring abroad, within a particular space, namely the post-Soviet space — in order to understand not only how migratory flows are perpetuated and anchored in the arrival territories, but also how management of the deceased can contribute to perpetuating and shaping transnational groups over time, on both sides of the borders they cross. This thematic dossier reviews several dimensions of death management in the context of migration: transnational care and translocal funeral rituals, risk mitigation and resource pooling practices, and transnational deathscapes.
This journal aims to publish both empirical and theoretical research work on different subjects which take into account international migration and inter-ethnic relationships. While it favors the geographical area of Europe, the journal is open to other areas and other migratory systems throughout the world. Read more...
