I would like to thank Kristen Jafflin, Sajida Ally, Jessica Potter, Thomas Abel and my peer reviewers for their inspiring comments. Thanks to Cindy-Jane Armbruster, Clara Benn, Alex Colville and Lucy Barnes for proof-reading the manuscript. Thanks also to Open Book Publishers for the professional handling of the publication. And thanks to my friends and family, and especially to Lukas, for listening to my stories over and over again.

Last but not least, thanks go to the medical and administrative professionals at the NGOs, and others based elsewhere, who gave their time for interviews. My greatest thanks, however, go to the undocumented migrants for agreeing to share their stories and a part of their lives with me.
