These papers investigate immigrant geographies of death, violence, health, as well as collective practices of refugees in making claim to urban space. They draw on worldwide data, research findings, and scholar-activist ethnographic research in Europe and in the United States. Results to inquiries about where and when forced migrant mortality is concentrated; why migrants and refugees encounter systematic brutality, intense conflicts, inadequate healthcare access and other subtle forms of alienation; and how displaced peoples contest and overcome pervasive barriers of marginalization and exclusion in different geopolitical contexts provide key insights on violence, racism, borders, transnationalism and recent immigration. The presentations contribute to critical race theories and migration studies by bringing together international, national and urban content that raise questions pertaining to risk, agency, cultural competence, or Europe’s self-image as “liberal and post-racial” in an era of heightened ethnonationalism around the world.
