Abstract [en]

By giving an extensive literature review and presenting the central objectives of this theme section, this introductory article develops a programmatic call for a critical anthropology of ‘home’ in relation to violence and place. Challenging assumptions that territoriality, rootedness, and memories of violence are necessarily the primary determinants of identification among people on the move, it proposes conceptual tools to investigate how and when such discourses may provide or prohibit the making of ‘home’. In particular, it draws attention to issues of political and economic transformation and the changing forms of violence and movement produced by them.
