Jungles, borders and abandonment along Southern European migration routes


The PhD students in Urban and Regional Development are pleased to invite you to the second season of DISTant Talks: The PhD Students Behind the Scenes.

Abstract: The Western Balkans have been under mounting pressure in handling the geographies of migration toward Fortress Europe. Since 2018, Bosnia and Herzegovina in particular has had to bear the brunt of this influx, with neither international nor local authorities responding humanely to the situation. This talk will focus on the archipelago of camps, the bordering practices and the sovereign forms of detention and abandonment that have shaped today’s dire conditions for migrants trying “The Game”, while discussing broader implications for other Southern European migration routes.

In this meeting:

  • Speaker - Claudio Minca (Università di Bologna)
  • Moderators - Lorenzo Mauloni - Richard Lee Peragine
DISTant Talks, season 2, is curated by DIST PhD students:
Allegra Eusebio, Karl Benjamin Kraehmer, Lorenzo Mauloni, Alessandra Mossa, Richard Lee Peragine, Caterina Pozzobon, Sofia Beatriz Rivera Garcia, Federica Rotondo, Saanchi Saxena, Elia Silvestro, Agostino Strina.
