Borders, Regimes, Disposability: a Symposium on Migration and State Violence
25 e 26 de junho de 2018, Faculdade de Economia da UC (dia 25) e Centro de Estudos Sociais da UC (dia 26)
«Borders, Regimes, Disposability» is an international symposium that brings together several scholars from across disciplinary affiliations and different parts of the world. Our one and half-day academic journey will provocatively engage in, inquire, and rethink the migration challenge and the idea of a borderless world. In a world of reviving nationalisms how can we bring the idea of global free movement into the political mainstream. The second of a series of symposium will take place in Coimbra, after last years’ Durham Symposium on migration and state violence. The intellectual exchange—deliberative, complementary, and perhaps even conflicting—is intended as a means for contributors to work through and build on their scholarly questions, commitments, and contributions. Challenging the idea of the securitization of the border and the sense of migrant as an intruder the goal is to understand why migration governance is dehumanizing the migrant".
