Summary This book develops a new concept of post-refugee transnationalism to describe experiences of Bosnian refugees who settled in Ireland after fleeing the conflict in 1990s Bosnia and Herzegovina. The book explores their ambivalent relationship with their host and home countries, Ireland and Bosnia, arguing that their current experiences are best described as post-refugee transnationalism. Post-refugee transnationalism is characterised by Bosnians dividing their time between the two countries rather than permanently settling in either and by engaging in summer migrations and diasporic interconnections and affiliations. The book proposes post-refugee transnationalism as different to other instances of transnationalism by stressing its enforced origin provoked by the conflict and institutionalized by the Dayton Peace Agreement. The book combines Foucaults biopolitics, David Theo Goldbergs understanding of nation states as racial states and Giorgio Agambens expansion on the idea of potentiality, to develop the concept of post-refugee transnationalism. Maja Halilovic-Pastuovic is Senior Research Fellow in the School of Religion at Trinity College Dublin, The University of Dublin, Ireland. She specialises in the sociology of conflict with particular focus on post-Dayton Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her current research focuses on the subject of radicalisation in Europe and Balkan Peninsula
