Migrating to a different country can be difficult, especially when attempting to start a business. Africans who migrate to the UK manage to negotiate and forge relationships among themselves and with the members of their host society. In doing so, they not only demonstrate tactics to form self-employment relationships, but they also unveil socio-cultural patterns and identity formation. The Evolution of Black African Entrepreneurship in the UK explains why people leave Africa, what they encounter, their interactions with the host community, their strategies of inclusion, and perceived exclusions from the mainstream of British society. This publication also provides information on the social changes and policies that African countries are adopting to negotiate the immigration and emigration processes of the diaspora communities. Illustrating multiple aspects of Black African entrepreneurship that serve as a vehicle not only for self-employment relationships but also for the unveiling of socio-cultural patterns and identity formation, this publication covers gender biases, forced vs. voluntary migration, and diaspora entrepreneurship. It is designed for policymakers, managers, entrepreneurs, consultants, practitioners, professionals, scholars, students, and researchers.

"Representing the fruit of in-depth dynamics it invites us to give all necessary attention to the concepts of conflict, cooperation and competition. By reflecting on the possible articulations of these concepts and attempting to apply them in diverse fields of social science the editors give voice to those who are studying the world as it is and perform the service of returning a set of concepts, approaches or paradigms to their legitimate place." - Michel Wieviorka, President, International Sociological Association This ISA Handbook presents and tracks the transformation of the societies and social relations that characterize the twenty-first century. The volume is organized around a conceptualization of three processes that are fundamental to the analyses of micro, meso and macro social relations: conflict, competition, and cooperation. In addition to chapters that delve into sociological theory, case studies and overviews of subfields discuss and contextualize debates from an international perspective, incorporating relevant material about North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Chapters on topics and fields crucial to the experience of people around the world include, among others: childhood studies, consumption, hunger, labour studies, peace-keeping, law, health, sport, and welfare. Systematic and informed, the handbook will serve readers in all branches of the social sciences, providing both experienced researchers and novices with the materials to explore the different domains of contemporary life.

In this groundbreaking book, Nira Yuval-Davis provides a cutting-edge investigation of the challenging debates around belonging and the politics of belonging. Alongside the hegemonic forms of citizenship and nationalism which have tended to dominate our recent political and social history, the author examines alternative contemporary political projects of belonging constructed around the notions of religion, cosmopolitanism, and the feminist ‘ethics of care’. The book also explores the effects of globalization, mass migration, the rise of both fundamentalist and human rights movements on such politics of belonging, as well as some of its racialized and gendered dimensions. A special space is given to the various feminist political movements that have been engaged as part of or in resistance to the political projects of belonging.

Die hier versammelten Beiträge spiegeln den aktuellen Stand der Debatte um Intersektionalität 20 Jahre nach Prägung des Begriffes im Schwarzen Feminismus in den USA. Bei seiner transatlantischen Reise durchlief der Ansatz Metamorphosen und fiel in Europa auf vorbereiteten Boden, insbesondere in anglophonen und deutschsprachigen feministischen Diskursen. Klasse, Geschlecht, Ethnizität und „Rasse“, Sexualität, Behinderung, Alter und andere Dimensionen von Ungleichheit und Identität werden inzwischen in intersektioneller Perspektive untersucht. In diesem Band wird der Ansatz vorgestellt und in transdisziplinäre und transnationale Analyseperspektiven wie Diskurstheorie, Biographieforschung, Wissenssoziologie, Rahmenanalyse und Sozialstrukturanalyse eingesetzt, ergänzt um kritische Interventionen zu Problemen und Grenzen dieses Konzepts. Mit Beiträgen von Mechtild Bereswill, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Kathy Davis, Jeff Hearn, Gudrun-Axeli Knapp, Kira Kosnick, Gail Lewis, Helma Lutz, Nina Lykke, Myra Marx Ferree, Anke Neuber, Ann Phoenix, Paula Irene Villa, Nira Yuval Davis, und Dubravka Zarkov.
