Border Crossings Conference

Marseille, France
- conference

Organiser: Aix-Marseille Institute for Advanced Studies (IMéRA)

This one-day interdisciplinary conference explored the interaction between bordering, rebordering, bridging and bonding. Participants examined national and local policies that affect migrant practices, especially border control policies and how they impact on migrants’ social strategies, economic achievements and cultural practices. They also tried to identify means that non-state actors and organizations use to help migrants in bridging the ‘here’ and ‘there’.
