Baobab Talk Series: "The plans, hopes and fears of Afghan families for the future" Prof. Lisa Schuster - 13 March 2019

Based on Prof. Schuster's extensive ethnographic work in Afghanistan,  the talk discussed how migration figured in Afghan families' plans,  hopes and fears for the future. 

Liza researches different stages of the migration process, in  particular the European regimes governing asylum, entry and deportation,  as well as the impact of deportation on those deported and their  families. An important element of her work is the role of racism as a  cause and response to migration. She worked in Afghanistan, exploring  how fears and perceptions about the presidential elections and the  withdrawal of international forces in 2014 is affecting emigration,  while finishing two manuscripts. She has also recently helped launch the  Afghanistan Migration Advice Organization
