25/05/2015 - It’s a borderful world: separatism and securitisation in the globalisation era

The Department of International Relations and European Studies cordially invites you to a workshop led by Jaume Castan Pinos, Assistant Professor at University of Southern Denmark, Department of Border Region Studies.

Date: 25 May 2015, 5:00 p.m.

Venue: MUP Prague-Strašnice building, Dubečská 900/10, room 305

The idea that borders are becoming increasingly fuzzy and territorial matters irrelevant to the human experience in the globalisation era has gained tremendous popularity.

Using evidence from securitisation policies in North Africa and territorial disputes in the Western Balkans, the seminar will contest this political discourse arguing that far from disappearing, borders are enjoying a golden era not despite of globalisation but because of it.
