On the Move
This chapter opens emphasizing how recent refugee flows into Turkey and Europe, as well as intensified policing of migrants and general isolationism in Europe and America, suggest an immediate future of global anti-migrant sentiment and immobility for labor migrants. The chapter traces key contributions of the book, specifically drawing attention to: historically inflected circuits of mobility and state power distinctly defining Eurasia under global capitalism; how structures of feeling established under socialism continue to shape the region; and gendered intimate practices as central to the experience of labor migration. Finally, the chapter argues that looking to migrants’ everyday lives, aspirations, and intimate practices provides a more humanized portrait of migrants that can contribute to bringing about political transformation addressing global inequalities.
