Kurztext

In TRAFIG Working Paper 1/2019 the authors Benjamin Etzold, Milena Belloni, Russell King, Albert Kraler and Ferruccio Pastore conceptualise protracted displacement and translocal connectivity through a process-oriented perspective. The theoretical foundation for TRAFIG’s research builds the concept of social figurations.

They re-define protracted displacement as a figuration, in which displaced people’s capabilities and opportunities are severely limited for prolonged periods of time. Multiple structural forces constrain them from using their capacities and making free choices: enduring displacing forces hinder return; marginalising forces prevent local integration; immobilising forces block chances to seek a future elsewhere.
