Mobilities and Migration Regimes in Eastern Europe under the Global Condition

Jonathan Everts / Steffi Marung / Wladimir Sgibnev

In the wake of economic and political transformations, fuzzy territorialities, and technological innovations, mobility and migration regimes have repeatedly shifted on all scales. After investigating transformations and contestations of mobility and migration in the region, Research Area 1 aims at a better longitudinal understanding of underlying normativities and infrastructures and their effects on the region’s position and agency in processes of globalisation. Thus, it addresses present and historical migration and bordering practices, materialities and technologies, and justice regimes.

A joint outcome will be to develop a comprehensive and historically informed informed collection of forms and methods of visualisations to grasp the region’s ambiguous and disputed mobility and migration regimes in a transregional perspective.
