Chalcraft, John (2007) Labour in the Levant. New left review, 45 . pp. 27-47. ISSN 0028-6060
Against celebrations of the messianic potential of migrant labour, John Chalcraft presents the case of Syrian workers in Lebanon, where porous borders and hybrid identities serve to reproduce exploitative conditions. What motivations and aspirations underpin migration—and what routes might lead out of commodification’s web?
