This bibliography has been made by the geographer & author Anne-Laure Fréant, also founder of a website & community for reentry in France (retourenfrance.fr). Anne-Laure has been living in Canada and New-Zealand, studying, working and backpacking, before coming back to France at the age of 30. Facing depression, anxiety, identity crisis and a deep sense of loss for several months, she started to investigate the reentry literature, in addition to her previous academic work on identity and transnationalism, looking for a way to heal.
This long and slow recovery lead to a book (The Guide of Reentry in France – updated each year since 2016), a 10 000 people support community online (on Facebook) and a job as a consultant for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in France.
The « reentry studies » project is a synthesis of her bibliographical research over the last three years. It has been made for students, researchers, professionnals of reentry, journalists or anyone going through reentry at a personnal level. The core value of this project is to make this knowledge available for everyone, as well as encourage more people to work and conduct research on reentry, especially over its psychological, social and anthropological dimensions.
There are around 300 references listed in our academic bibliography so far (15 pages), about 90% in english and 10% in french. New references are added each year.
