New zine just out by Tatiana Thieme and colleagues from the Camps2Cities project. The zine draws on multi-sited research in the cites of Athens, Budapest, Berlin and Paris exploring the experiences of migrants and refugees and asking what role local and national governments and civil society have in 'integrating' migrants. The zine includes images, reflections and stories from participants and collaborators in each city.
