Routes and Walls. A cycle of online seminars on migration and borders across Europe, Africa and North America

Over the last decade, a series of global events has destabilised and redesigned the architecture of the external borders of the European Union and the United States, contributing to the social construction of an imaginary of the Global North as a hermetically sealed territory.

Within this framework, this cycle of seminars – which will be animated by sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, journalists, artists, and international experts in migration policies – aims to promote a cross-disciplinary reflection on migrations and border policies on the two shores of the Atlantic Ocean, identifying points of contact and divergences.

Nell’ultimo decennio, una serie di eventi globali ha destabilizzato e ridisegnato l’architettura dei confini esterni dell’Unione Europea e degli Stati Uniti, contribuendo alla costruzione sociale di un immaginario del Nord Globale come territorio ermeticamente sigillato.

In questo quadro, questo ciclo di seminari – che sarà animato da sociologi, politologi, antropologi, giornalisti, artisti ed esperti internazionali di politiche migratorie – intende promuovere una riflessione interdisciplinare sulle migrazioni e sulle politiche di frontiera sulle due sponde del l’Oceano Atlantico, individuando punti di contatto e divergenze.
