Understanding Border Securitization in Contemporary Societies

28 - 30 May 2020 | Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca (Romania)


Border securitization remains a salient issue for many countries in the context of recent domestic and international political developments. Important waves of transnational migration, the management of post-conflict areas, problematic transitions to democracy, the spread of terror attacks, the emergence of unconventional threats have contributed to a broad debate about the direction and intensity of border securitization in contemporary societies. The meaning of border securitization changes over time, its causes are complex, its functions vary across settings and its consequences are often under-explored.

This conference aims to bring together works addressing any of these four elements of border securitization: the understanding, causes, functioning and consequences. The event will gather a group of 30 researchers working on these topics in order to facilitate the knowledge sharing and a better understanding of current events. The organizers strive for a balance between established academics, early career scholars (PhD candidates may also apply) and practitioners. We encourage theoretical, empirical or methodological papers on any aspects related to developments and approaches in the field of border securitization. Papers can cover any country or region of the world, there are no limitations in terms of geographical focus. 

Depending on the quality, and scope of works, the organizers have in mind either a special issue in an international peer-reviewed journal or an edited volume with a high-profile publisher.

Papers can address any of the following topics including, but not limited to:

• Migration and border securitization;

• The role of international actors in shaping border securitization;

• Territorial rivalries and geopolitical challenges;

• The effects of border securitization on politics or economics;

• Border securitization and national security;

• Border management and international cooperation;

• The impact of terrorism or unconventional threats on border securitization.

1ST Call for Papers
Annual Meeting of the Austrian Economic Association (NOeG)

“Evidence-Based Economic Policy Making”

The increasing availability of high-quality (administrative) data for economic research has triggered a shift in the way economists approach questions on the impacts of economic policies and led to substantial advances in the methodological toolbox for identifying causal effects of economic policies in virtually all sub-disciplines of economics. The annual conference of the Austrian Economic Association aims at discussing recent results and new findings on the effects of economic policies putting a specific but not exclusive focus on Austria. The conference also provides a forum for a discussion on how empirical evidence can more effectively inform actual economic policy making.
