During this two-day seminar, a group of international senior scholars working on bordering, migration control and the management of cross-border mobility will gather in Leiden. The aim of the seminar is to engage in in-depth interdisciplinary discussions on how to deal with the challenges of mobility without infringing upon human rights and humanitarian principles. The anticipated output of the seminar is a special issue of a journal as well as a sequence of blogs.

The seminar is made possible by funding from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the LDE Center for Safety and Security.
