Making citizens legible: legacies of population registration systems in post-socialist cities


Hatcher, C (2011). Making citizens legible: legacies of population registration systems in post-socialist cities. Working paper for the Social Research Centre, Social Research Center. American University of Central Asia.

Abstract

The distinction between what is defined as international or internal migration depends on the (in)stability of the borders that surround and encapsulate nation-states. Simplistically, the former operates on the basis of individuals moving between one nation-state and another while the latter represents movement within the borders of one nation-state. Contemporary debates in migration
studies are beginning to address the connection and pathways that ‘bridge the gap’ between international and internal migration, highlighting a blurring of the two categories as migratory movements become increasingly complex and fractured (King and Skeldon, 2010). However, while I understand the importance of addressing the linkages between international and internal migration,
my aim in this working paper is to contribute to the limited amount of literature on the “forgotten migrants”: those that migrate internally within the borders of their own country or nation-state (Laczko, 2008).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
