Workshop | CCGES Transatlantic Forum 2013
York University, Toronto, Nov 29/30 2013
Borders and migration are often linked to crises in multiple ways. Current discussions about the partial reintroduction of border controls in the EU, for example, are linked to the Euro-crisis — they are reactions to an economic crisis and accompanied by blame-shifting on migrant others and a different scale of governance. They also draw on discourses of crisis — a »crisis of immigration« or of the asylum system in the EU. They represent a politically and discursively created crisis.
