Cars, Priests and Haircuts is the second part of the Halfway Home project. It’s a trilogy that looks at how migration changes economic, religious and cultural patterns both in the receiving societies as in the issuing ones.
’Cars’ looks at the economy of the second hand car trade between Brussels and West-Africa as an example of how migration networks can influence and shape economic patterns.
see link in menu for the book.
’Priests’ looks at changes within the muslim communities in Paris and Brussels and how they are influenced by what is happening in the heartlands of these communities. Book in progress (due spring 2022) ’Haircuts’ is in progress and should be published somewhere in 2022-2023.
