  Add to Calendar 11/12/2014 9:00 12/12/2014 13:00 Europe/Paris Borders in Transition: Rethinking Sovereignty, Domestic Politics and International Relations in the MENA Region

The conference sets out to explore the impact of the transition process in North Africa and the Middle East (MENA) on the nature and management of borders. Focusing on Libya, Egypt/Sinai, and Syria/Iraq, the conference addresses the following questions: Firstly, what are the implications of the altered nature of borders in the region for the notion of state sovereignty? Secondly, how did altered patterns of border management affect the role of specific local and societal actors? Thirdly, the conference will reflect on the regional and international dimension of these developments, including the implications for the EU--the ʼborderlandsʼ of the MENA region. Registration for this event is mandatory. Please contact the RSCAS Conference Centre.
