Helena Flam and Brigitte Beauzamy’s ‘Symbolic Violence’ is the first chapter within the third and final section of the book, titled ‘Cases of Belonging and Exclusion’. It assesses the relevance of the concept of symbolic violence, now perhaps primarily associated with Pierre Bourdieu, for understanding the ‘everyday’ forms of discrimination faced by migrants in Europe.
