The Centrality of Mobilization Against Migration in Europe: Why, How and to What Effect? - 29.11, 11.00 (GMT)

You are cordially invited to the Mapping Out project final conference " The Centrality of Mobilization Against Migration in Europe: Why, How and to What Effect?" with Professor Researcher Kristian Berg Harpvinken (PRIO, Norway). 


Kristian Berg Harpviken is a Research Professor at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and holds a PhD in Sociology. Harpviken is a long-time student of Afghanistan and the surrounding region. His main research interests are wartime migration, transnational movements and mobilization, regional security, and the dynamics of civil war. He is a frequently used media commentator and lectures regularly to both scholarly and popular audiences. He is the author of Social Networks and Migration in Wartime Afghanistan (Palgrave MacMillan, 2009), and (with Shahrbanou Tadjbakhsh), A Rock Between Hard Places: Afghanistan as an Arena of Regional Insecurity (Hurst, 2016).

Mapping Out is a partnership between Cies-Iscte, Portugal and Prio, Norway, funded by the EEA grants scheme. The project is part of a wider transnational collaboration that focuses on a cutting-edge topic in the migration and social movement’s field: transnational anti-immigration movements. Mapping Out adds to the “Reaching Out to Close the Border: The Transnationalization of Anti-Immigration Movements in Europe (MAM)” project, led by Kristian Berg Harpviken (PRIO), by incorporating the Portuguese case to its analysis.

The event will take place on 29 November, from 11h-13h (GMT), at ICS-University of Lisbon, room 03.
