intentions, our collaborative working experiences have served to illustrate just how productive and insightful our research endeavours have been, and our abilities to generate arguments and publications which draw on the points of comparison briefly sketched out above illustrate this achievement. To conclude, we are more convinced than ever that the urban peripheries are a critical site of urbantransformation which offers insights into a true diversity of urban change. We are confident that our methodological choices to examine these dynamic peripheries through the lens

In addition to this, the chapter draws on research supported by the following grants: the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme funding for the Human Brain Project under Grant Agreement No. 720270; ESRC Award ES/L003074/1: A New Sociology for a New Century: Transforming the Relations between Sociology and Neuroscience, through a Study of Mental Life ; ESRC-NSFC Award ES/N010892/1: UrbanTransformations in China; and an award for Mental Health, Migration and the

and the ensuing repercussions, such moves may, in turn, provoke people to resort to
