Title research: Navigating everyday borderwork: Ethical dilemmas of grassroots refugee humanitarianism.

Through an ethnography of grassroots organizations, the analysis illuminates how cultural representations of alterity and belonging shape solidarity initiatives and daily interactions with migrants.
