This book, focusing on an understudied ethnic group, draws linkages between ethnic conflict, international migration, and individual strategies and networks. It triangulates quantitative survey data with narratives collected through in-depth interviews providing insights of Turkey's Kurds migration experiences, using a novel conceptual tool, the "environment of insecurity."
Ibrahim Sirkeci is Lecturer at the European Business School of Regent's College in London.
