Summary:
In an era of mass migration and restrictive responses, this text seeks to understand how migrants negotiate their place in the receiving society and adapt innovative strategies to integrate, participate, and access protection. Their acceptance is often contingent on the expectation that they contribute economically to the host country while remaining politically and socially invisible. These unwritten expectations, which this book calls the 'invisibility bargain,' produce a precarious status in which migrants' visible differences or overt political demands on the state may be met with a hostile backlash from the host society.
