The study, which drew on material from a series of interviews held with 20 international migrants over the course of a year, succeeded in giving ‘voice’ to a set of deeply personal narratives about circumstances, motives, dreams and aspirations that belonged to a group of people who are often spoken of, but rarely heard; those living the ‘silenced lives’ (LeCompte, 1993) of the ‘hard to reach’.The study found that reflexive globalisation is not a fair and equal process; migrants enter and travel through ‘zones of migration’, which they navigate and negotiate via the differing amounts of agency apportioned to them by the UK State on the basis of their legitimacy within and in relation to a tiered policy of immigration and asylum. Framed by this relationship with the UK State, migrants become agents of this legitimacy, which serves to empower or restrict their abilities to act. Further agency is found in securing paid employment and by ‘diasporic clustering’ rather than integration.
This evening we will hold our first virtual meeting as a Madison Common Council. A lot of work has been put into creating a system that will allow us to conduct our business and that will allow for public comment and participation. We did a trial run yesterday that went relatively smoothly, but we will likely run into some challenges during tonight’s meeting.
So the older lady who is her coworker who you may think is her close friend may just be a close “work friend”. They probably don’t hang out outside of the office or text each other all day unless it is work related.I have a close work friend who I only talk to about work and MAYBE sometimes I’ll mention something silly my dog did or she will mention her cat or that she is moving to a new apartment. Otherwise it’s 99% work related chatter.I hope this helps! She may see you as a work friend and not someone she wants to let in to her personal life outside of work.
This is the westernised perspective for public consumption in the west. It should be realised that many Chinese wholeheartedly believe in what we consider to be the supernatural, and will not interfere in something such as this, for fear of offending or invoking the wrath of the spirits or demons that are believed to be involved. (The Book of Chinese Beliefs by Frena Bloomfield).
