Border as Conflict
Turbulences of the Post-2015 European Border Regime
The migrations of 2015 have left a profound impact on the European border and migration regime and, indeed, on the European project in general. The governance of migration has since been re-established in a multitude of ways and modes. This volume assembles accounts of crucial sites of such crisis-led policies and their diverse effects in Turkey, Greece and the Balkans. An ethnographic approach allows complex close-ups of newly invented border technologies, highlighting their various fractures and contradictions. The volume shows that, seeing migrants' evidently unrestrainable desire to gain a safer and better life, the border has to be conceptualized today as a »zone of conflict and interaction«.
