This chapter introduces the book’s themes of migration, displacement, community resistance and the development of community solidarities – drawing upon the author’s experiences as well as her previous research. In the context of neo-liberal globalisation there are common underlying causes for the movement of peoples, whether these are movements within countries or movements across national borders. There are similarities as well as differences between people’s displacements, including people’s displacement as a result of social cleansing, here in Britain. The chapter concludes by introducing the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   Migration, Displacement, Communities, Community resistance, Social solidarity, Neo-liberal globalisation
