Online via Webex

LAU’s Institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution (ISJCR) is co-organizing a webinar with Sciences PO in Paris to share recent research findings on Governing Migration as “Crisis” in Lebanon, as part of the H2020 EU Migration Governance and Asylum Crises (MAGYC) project.

Through a focus on three case studies, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey, this webinar explores the ways in which “migration governance” has been shaped by a “crisis” imaginary. We will explore the extent to which this imaginary has led to the mobilization of new actor constellations including private security companies, humanitarian organizations, international organizations and migrants and how these actors produce different forms of governmental practices.
