Fifth Annual Conference of the African Borderlands Research Network ABORNE

"Crossing African Borders: Migration and Mobility", ISCTE-IUL, Lisbon

(21-23 September 2011)

 

 

Focusing on the role of African borders in migratory movements, the Conference will address several topics and discuss the importance and role of borders to the circulation and identity building, the implications of border management and the strategies of populations for migration and border crossing. Panels will analyze current changes and their historical roots; discuss the mutual implications of cross-border circulation, migration and identities; present empirical evidence of transformations taking place; contribute to the theoretical debate and methodological approach of borderland studies in Africa.
