Contesting Borders/Shifting Orders: Russia’s War of Aggression on Ukraine and Its Impact on Border-Making and Migration

GlocalEast Multiplier Event – Public event, 16.09.2022, 09:30am – 06:00pm

The war in Ukraine has far-reaching geopolitical, humanitarian and socio-cultural consequences – not only for Ukraine itself, but also for neighboring countries, other European states and the European Union itself. In this public event, we will ask what migration and border studies can contribute to understanding the war and its consequences, and how they should be designed to address the new social challenges, especially with regard to migration processes. The event includes contributions from scholars and civil society activists from Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Serbia, and Ukraine.


The event is a multiplier event of the GlocalEast project and will take place as part of the GLocalEAst Summer School “Global Migration, Diaspora and Border Studies in East-Central Europe” at the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION, European University Viadrina, (September 5-16, 2022). It is addressed to the academic public as well as to interested citizens, and can be followed on site (Logensaal, European University of Viadrina) as well as online. The corresponding link will be sent after registration.
