The second issue of the transnational multilingual web-journal Transversal presented papers from the conference held in Vienna in October 2017. The texts appear in German, English, Turkish Croatian/Serbian, Chinese, Georgian and Arabic. They analyze the phenomenon of migration from various perspectives, highlighting the numerous forms of marginalization, class, gender, ethnicity, and geopolitics, as well as their relations to economic exploitation in the past and present. They go well beyond the politico-economic logic of migrant labor, questioning how both current market needs and racist right-wing mobilization influence Realpolitik.
