The Call for 2nd Summer School in Migration: European Border Regime in the Periphery of the EU

The Second Summer School in Migration explores the analytical potential of critical migration and border regime studies in the context of the EU periphery or more precisely in the context of research of/along the so-called Balkan route. The school will consider current research and the struggles surrounding migration in the Balkan region. It will also explore the wide range of attempts made by the EU, transnational institutions, countries, local and interregional structures, and multiple humanitarian actors to regain control over the migrants’ movements after the official closure of the humanitarian-securitarian corridor in 2016. It will reflect on the highly dynamic and conflictual developments since the long summer of migration and its historical entanglements, the ambiguities of humanitarian interventions and strategies of containment, migrational tactics to survive, local struggles, artistic interventions, regional and transnational activism, and recent initiatives to curb the extensive practices of border violence and pushbacks.

The Summer School is a joint project organized by the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research (Croatia), the University of Göttingen, Department of Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology (Germany), the Institute of Ethnography of the Serbian Academy of Sciences (Serbia), the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (Slovenia), the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Cultural Studies and Center for Advanced Studies – Southeastern Europe (Croatia).

Program of the “Equality and Citizenship 2019” Summer School

The Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe, the University of Rijeka, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Rijeka and the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy are organizing the 6th edition of the Equality and Citizenship Summer School which will be held from July  10th to 14th, 2019 in Rijeka, Croatia.

The Summer school does not reproduce, in a diluted form, the familiar teaching format of a university course. Instead, it is organized around “Author-Meets-Critics” symposia that are dedicated to publications and works-in-progress by some distinguished authors. All the leading participants will give a paper on a topic on which they are currently working, or a précis of a recently published book. During the symposia dedicated to them, they will then reply to the papers given by the other scholars.

This year’s leading participants are:

Prof John Dunn, University of Cambridge

Prof Emanuela Ceva, University of Pavia

Prof Martin O’Neill, University of York

Prof Snježana Prijić-Samaržija, University of Rijeka

Others who only want to contribute as audience members are invited to send their applications by June 10th, 2019. All applications should be sent to e-mail politicalphilosophy@cas.uniri.hr.
