Advanced seminar in migration

The advanced seminar in migration “European Border Regime in the Periphery of the EU” 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 seminar will consider current research and the struggles resulting from the pandemic context. It will explore and reflect on the highly dynamic and conflictual developments and their 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.
