Who hosts a politics of welcome? – commentary to Gill
This review is written as a letter, and addressed to my colleague Nick Gill. It is an effort to continue conversations about the politics of welcome as they relate to practices of asylum and our academic modes of inquiry into this field of study. In particular, this letter reflects upon Gill’s piece, The Suppression of Welcome’, which is based on his keynote lecture at the Finnish Geography Days 2017 in Turku.
