Annett Bochmann: Public Camp Orders and the Power of Microstructures in the Thai-Burmese Borderland

Lanham, New York, London: Rowman & Littlefield 2021

Based on extensive ethnographic field research, Public Camp Orders and the Power of Microstructures in the Thai-Burmese Borderland makes a unique contribution to empirical and theoretical discourses on camp institutions, (forced) migration, and border regimes. Focusing on public camp life, everyday interactions, and the concept of microstructures, this ethnography explores local practices of mobility, governance, and economy in the context of plural and temporary environments.
