The political drive towards expanding walls, policing infrastructures, camps, detention centres, interceptions at sea, pushbacks, deportations, surveillance, and racist immigration policies that restrict asylum and migration is hereby not only a legacy of past empires but is also indicative of new emerging…

Seminar series “Rupture and Reconciliation in Contexts of Displacement”

26 January - 9 March
Online event
Free

This event approaches displacement through the theme of ‘rupture’. Policy definitions of ‘displacement’ often focus on physical dislocation and geographical journeys, and the term is used interchangeably with ‘forced migration’. Yet displacement is often characterised less by mobility than immobilization, with many stuck behind borders or in camps and detention centres. Rather than taking movement as the defining feature of displacement, this event focuses on ‘rupture’ of the relations that constitute a sense of place and belonging: between self and…

Migrants’ crisis in the local news: evidence from the French-Italian border (webinar)

23 February , 17 h 30 min - 18 h 30 min CET
Online event
Free

This paper investigates the impact of local exposure to the migration crisis events on the local news market. Exploiting a narrow geographical setting, this study explores a policy dating June 2015, whereby French authorities introduced militarized controls at the Italian frontier. This resulted into a consistent push back of the irregular crossings of migrants and asylum seekers to the Italian land. Collecting approximately fifty thousand local news in the interested areas of Liguria (Italy) between 2011 and 2019, this study…
