* How migrant and diaspora communities construct new ways of belonging
NON-NATIONAL FORMS OF BELONGING:
* How national belonging is responding to alternative, non-national forms of attachment
* The role of supra-national and sub-national forces in redefining belonging
* The relationship between national belonging and cosmopolitanism/post-nationalism
