Chittagong , ,Bangladesh
Contact person: Nasir Uddin
The workshop focuses the ways how borders are dealt with from strategic and diplomatic point of view in South Asia; how borders become spaces for people to move from one state to another in search of a better fortune (economic migrants), escaping persecution (refugees) and finding a disaster-free living place (climate migrants); how the states in South Asia address transborder movements at both policy level and practical fields; how borders are used for illegal trades and informal economy in South Asian states; How refugee crises, illegal migrations, citizenship issues and camp/stranded people are dealt with in South Asian states as consequences of transborder movement; and how the notions of territoriality of statehood become blurred due to the increasing transborder movements in South Asia.rnrnThe International Workshop on ‘Transborder movements and the states in South Asia’ invites abstract of 350 words from the scholars working on borders and borderland people; migration and refugee issues; camp/stranded people and citizenship issues; climate migrants, the state and statelessness; border trade and informal economy; transborder mobility and statehood; the political economy of transborder movement; inter-state border policy and strategic issues; border, security issues, and militancy in South Asia. Abstract along with short academic biography of 150 words should be sent to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by October 15, 2016.rnrnThe workshop is designed as part of a book project which is planned to publish from an internationally reputed publishing house following the workshop outcome. Regrettably the organisers are not in a position to bear the travel fare, but will be happy to provide local hospitality (lodging, meals and local transportation) during the workshop days at the cost of a decent registration fee (USD $75 or 5000 BDT). We are still looking for funding and if it somehow works out, the local hospitality will be provided at free of fee.
Deadline for abstracts/proposals: 2016-10-15
