Emotions are increasingly recognised as a fundamental dimension of human mobility. Indeed, there has been sustained and increasing scholarly interest in the intersection between migration and emotion over the last two decades.Theoretical and empirical contributions in this area have advanced our understanding of migration experiences in their diversity. Furthermore, viewing migrants’ lived experiences through an emotions lens can reveal a variety of hidden inequalities, unsettle hegemonic discourses and reveal practices of resistance.Perceptions of social categories such as ethnicity, gender, sexuality and age are shaped by emotions and it is therefore valuable to ‘investigate how certain emotions “stick” to certain bodies or flow and traverse space’.
