Ring lecture of the Refugee Law Clinic
"Behind the border . before the law " - book introduction
Book presentation and exchange with the authors Dr. Lisa Marie Borrelli and Dr. Anna Wyss.
"Behind the border, before the law" is a legal sociological contribution to the debate about migration control and belonging.
The authors examine the perspectives of state actors, NGOs, people with a precarious legal status and various institutions in eight European nations and come to the important conclusion that all actors involved are repeatedly caught in Kafkaesque time loops and formality and informality also in Western Europe are not opposites. (From the announcement of the publisher)
Dr. Lisa Marie Borrelli and Dr. Anna Wyss give an insight into their work and present the results of their study. The authors will then be available for a mutual exchange and discussion of their work.
