The conference discusses the materialisation of the securitisation and externalisation of border zones in different geographies and their transnational entanglements. It asks how the securitisation policy of the EU border regime is strategically planned and implemented, where it fails and how one can resist these mechanisms of violence.
A special focus will be on the EU's externalisation policies in relation to people moving in different geographical regions such as the Balkans, the Mediterranean and North Africa. Therefore, we want to discuss the violent effects of new border fences, modern surveillance equipment and increasing police and military corporations, as well as the involvement of international (humanitarian) organisations and local NGOs in maintaining this regime. What are future scenarios and forms of resistance?
Interpretation: The discussion and inputs will be in English; simultaneous translation to other languages can be organised.
