Migration literature now occupies an important place in world literature and offers unique perspectives on transnational justice. Migration literature is a useful vehicle for narrating conflicted experiences of belonging and identity in multilingual and multicultural contexts, as well as enabling public engagement with issues arising in an era of (neoliberal) globalisation, and their incorporation into new modes of literary narrative and poetic structure. This session explores the concept of 'migrant justice' as a trope of both migration and world literature, and concludes with reflections on the contemporary relevance of this literary concept in view of public debates on immigration.
