This book explains theoretical work in postcolonial and postsocialist studies to
offer a novel and distinctive insight into how Yugoslavia is configured by, and
through, race. It presents the history of how ideas of racialised difference
have been translated globally in Yugoslavia. The book provides a discussion on
the critical race scholarship, global historical sociologies of 'race in
translation' and south-east European cultural critique to show that the
Yugoslav region is deeply embedded in global formations of race. It considers
the geopolitical imagination of popular culture; the history of ethnicity; and
transnational formations of race before and during state socialism, including
the Non-Aligned Movement. The book also considers the post-Yugoslav discourses
of security, migration, terrorism and international intervention, including the
War on Terror and the refugee crisis. It elaborates how often-neglected aspects
of the history of nationhood and migration reveal connections that tie the
region into the global history of race. The book also explains the linkage
between ethnic exclusivism and territory in the ethnopolitical logic of the
Bosnian conflict and in the internationally mediated peace agreements that
enshrined it: 'apartheid cartography'. Race and whiteness remained
perceptible in post-war Bosnian identity discourses as new, open-ended forms of
post-conflict international intervention developed.

Alongside the use of imagery, they form part of an approach to critical race- and postcolonialstudies that foregrounds multiple ways of knowing and engaging with the social. Chambers and Cavallo have also argued that music is central to the construction of Neapolitan cultural identity, as the city is a crossroads and meeting place of different cultures and creolised histories (Chambers 2008 ; Chambers and Cavallo 2018
Recognition and Global Politics examines the potential and limitations of the discourse of recognition as a strategy for reframing justice and injustice within contemporary world affairs. Drawing on resources from social and political theory and international relations theory, as well as feminist theory, postcolonial studies and social psychology, this ambitious collection explores a range of political struggles, social movements and sites of opposition that have shaped certain practices and informed contentious debates in the language of recognition.

The rise of the ‘post-colonial’
‘Post-colonial’ is not a new term. A
search of the JSTOR archive demonstrates that it was already a not uncommon, if somewhat
scholarly, term in the first half of the twentieth century. Its primary
reference in this period seems to have been the United States, with secondary reference to
Latin America; and its primary
broader contexts of
anti-colonial nationalism as antecedents and legitimate elements of the
field. And to conceive of the field as the provenance of materialist, historicist critics as much as it is of textualist and culturalist critics. If we look at
the publication trajectory of postcolonialstudies since 1978, and confine
the glance only to metropolitan Anglophone academic publications within
cultural studies, we find that materialist contributions have been a significant and persistent element throughout this period.
The year 1989, for example, saw the publication

number of issues, explored here, that colonial and postcolonialstudies
have ignored or find difficulty in including in their grander analyses.
A commonplace of postcolonialstudies is the supposed subversiveness of

cultural hybridity, and writing or speaking
Given the significant similarities and differences between the welfare states of Northern Europe and their reactions to the perceived 'refugee crisis' of 2015, the book focuses primarily on the three main cases of Denmark, Sweden and Germany. Placed in a wider Northern European context – and illustrated by those chapters that also discuss refugee experiences in Norway and the UK – the Danish, Swedish and German cases are the largest case studies of this edited volume. Thus, the book contributes to debates on the governance of non-citizens and the meaning of displacement, mobility and seeking asylum by providing interdisciplinary analyses of a largely overlooked region of the world, with two specific aims. First, we scrutinize the construction of the 2015 crisis as a response to the large influx of refugees, paying particular attention to the disciplinary discourses and bureaucratic structures that are associated with it. Second, we investigate refugees’ encounters with these bureaucratic structures and consider how these encounters shape hopes for building a new life after displacement. This allows us to show that the mobility of specific segments of the world’s population continues to be seen as a threat and a risk that has to be governed and controlled. Focusing on the Northern European context, our volume interrogates emerging policies and discourses as well as the lived experiences of bureaucratization from the perspective of individuals who find themselves the very objects of bureaucracies.
