Summary note
"This book explores the question of whether the conceptualisation of New Zealand as a tolerant, welcoming nation is accurate. Examining historical and contemporary narratives of migrant and refugee discrimination, it considers the economic, social, political, cultural and historical contexts from which discrimination emerges and its repercussions. Alert to race and ethnicity, gender, age, class, religion, and inter-ethnic migrant conflict, the volume traverses an array of discriminatory practices - including xenophobia, racism, and sectarianism - and responses to them. With rich evidence, fascinating new insights, and engagement comparatively and transnationally with global themes of exploitation, exclusion, and inequalities, Narratives of Migrant and Refuge Discrimination in New Zealand will appeal to scholars across the humanities and social sciences with interests in migration and diaspora studies, race and ethnicity, and refugee studies"-- Provided by publisher.
