Workshop 'The Border Within'

28.04.2013 - 09:00

The Border Within: The Internalization of Difference in Central Europe and the Middle East

Ein internationaler Workshop, der von 28.-29. April 2013 an der Universität Tel Aviv stattfindet

Borders, according to conventional wisdom, are a necessary aspect of any society. On the individual level, they allow for personal autonomy and establish guidelines that regulate daily interaction. On the social level, they often help forge a sense of belonging and community. And, on the political level, borders mark and establish the limits of sovereignty that grant 
polities the justification to act in the name of their subjects.

Konferenz 'Implications of the Eurozone crisis for perceptions, politics and policies of migration'

29.11.2012 - 10:00
30.11.2012 - 15:00


Veranstaltungsort: St. Gertrud (, Malmö, Schweden

    Malmö Institute for Studies of Migration, Diversity and Welfare (MIM), Malmö


The acute and seemingly perennial Eurozone crisis has been front-page news for more than a year now, and shows no sign of receding anytime soon. The current crisis raises several questions of how it should be viewed in relation to previous crises and whether or not it signifies a decline of Europe vis-à-vis other regions in the world. This conference grapples with these questions within one specific field, namely the perceptions, politics and policies of migration.
In this context, questions for the conference are: Who is blamed for today’s negative developments in Europe? Are they attributed to minority groups, to migrants, to politicians in charge, to the EU as such, to individual EU countries or to all of the above? The perspective ushers in arguments about scapegoating, conspiracy theories and political myth-making, but also political strategies of attaining legitimacy, agenda power and the dynamics of mainstream politics. What political strategies are devised to meet popular perceptions of a relative decline? What are the popular responses; do new social movements arise or is increased passivity the most common response? What successes do populist-party strategies obtain in this setting?
However, in dealing with these questions it is important not to lose sight of the historical reference points and make comparisons to other periods in the past of Europe. Among the topics that will be highlighted in this regard are the historically shifting perceptions of migration in Europe, for instance on immigration between European countries from late 19th to mid-20th century, as compared to today’s EU regime of internal movement, labour migration and refugee immigration.
