MetadataShow full item record
New patterns of mobility are continuously shaping and being shaped by macro processes of liberalisation and capitalism on the one hand and local processes embedded in culture, class, ethnicity and race on the other hand. India is no exception and new transregional alliances as well as actors and institutions are shaping the “power geometry” (Massey, 1993) of migration by determining who migrates, why, where and under what circumstances. There has been an increase incertain forms of migrant labour such as construction work, care work and industrial labouror, what Sassen (2001) calls the “real work” of modern societies.
