Undocumented migration is a huge global phenomenon, yet little is known about the reality of life for those involved. Sans Papiers, by Roger Zetter, Nando Sigona and Alice Bloch, combines a contemporary account of the theoretical and policy debates with an in-depth exploration of the lived experiences of undocumented migrants in the UK from Zimbabwe, China, Brazil, Ukraine and Turkish Kurdistan. Built around their voices, the book provides a unique understanding of migratory processes, gendered experiences and migrant aspirations. In this talk, Roger Zetter and Nando Sigona will draw on their book to explore the ambiguities and contradictions of being an undocumented migrant, providing insights into personal experiences alongside analysis of wider policy issues. Light refreshments will be provided after the event.
