Migration, Movement, Waiting: On Dynamics between Stagnation and Progression
Conference within the LMU Cambridge Strategic Partnership.
Barriers, fences and borders in Europe forced and still force many prospective migrants to lead lives in suspension, a state of waiting, not knowing when the moment of departure will be, if it will ever arrive. Waiting determines the everyday lives of many refugees and migrants, awaiting permissions, authorizations in an effort to move from one place to another, but also enclosure from a repetitive present to the future. Movement may be the more well known face of migration, but waiting and immobility have shaped as intensely experiences of passage, in the past as well as in the present.
Participants among others: Nadia Al-Bagdadi (IAS CEU), Madeleine Arnot (Cambridge), Tugba Basaran (Cambridge), Paolo Campana (Cambridge), Jenny Mander (Cambridge), Alfred Oti (Cambridge), Ines Prodöhl (Bergen).
