Abstract

Earlier studies on migration were largely dominated by the study of the determinants of migration, with economic theories being at the fore in explaining this phenomenon. Our focus instead will be on the life-cultivating practices that migrants associate with ‘home societies’ and wish to maintain in host societies. Rather than pursue the darker side of ‘biopolitics’, we focus instead on the domestication of nurtured life and the privatization of everyday practices ensuring well-being within the diasporic setting of Grassfield Cameroonians in Cape Town.
