Borders and migration management, a comparative perspective

 

Round table in English

 

Abstract

 

Today, border control is at the heart of debates in different parts of the world. This issue raises many questions often linked together: security, migration, economy, etc. Borders are characterized by their changing nature and ongoing negotiations over the crossing's modalities. During conflicts and political tensions, they often appear as an obstacle to human mobility. This roundtable will discuss different border management experiences through population control mechanisms (United States/Mexico, Jordan/Syria/Palestine borders). Moreover, it will look at how these borders structure the socio-economic life and the daily movements of the local communities and the migrants.
