Combining conflict studies and feminist perspectives on everyday violence, this book analyses games and push-back which are vectors to migrants' border-crossing attempts and violence that aims to deter their journeys at the Bosnian-Croatian border. It questions how these diverse forms of violence are experienced, not treating violence as singular episodes but rather paying attention to how migrants make meaning of it across months and years. The author examines direct violence and its symbiosis with structural harms and questions how these turn into everyday, concrete, and intimate processes at the border. She also questions who this violence targets and where it takes place and asks whether and how the dominant assumptions about race and gender impact men's migration journeys. The book will appeal to scholars and postgraduate students interested in issues of migration, violence, masculinities, racialization, the European Union’s border governance, and scholar activism.
