Since the refugee crisis of 2015, the topic of migration has moved to the center of global political debates. Despite the frequently invoked notion that current developments are without historical precedent, migration has been a constant feature of contemporary history, particularly in Europe. Jannis Panagiotidis considers a particular type of migration, co-ethnic migration, where migrants seek admission to a country based on their purported ethnicity or nationality being the same as the country of destination. Panagiotidis looks at immigration to Germany and Israel, focusing on individual cases where migrants were not allowed to enter the country. These rejections confound notions of an "open door" or a "return to the homeland" and present contrasting ideas of descent, culture, blood, and race. Panagiotidis shows that migration is never a simple matter of moving from place to place. Questions of historical origins, immigrant selection and screening, and national belonging are deeply ambiguous and complicate migration even in nations that are purported to be ethnically homogenous.

Here's what you say about us...

Jannis Panagiotidis is Junior Professor of Migration and Integration of Russian Germans at the Osnabrck University Institute for Migration Research and Intercultural Studies. He is editor (with Victor Dnninghaus and Hans-Christian Petersen) of "Jenseits der Volksgruppe": Neue Perspektiven auf die Russlanddeutschen zwischen Russland, Deutschland und Amerika.

Panagiotidis takes full advantage of the potential for comparison, delving into the minutiae of legislation, political disputes, and individual case studies. His conclusions are as insightful as they are startling.
