On Thursday, 11 April, Prof. Camille Schmoll, geographer and expert in Euro-Mediterranean migration dynamics at the Paris Diderot University, will give a lecture on the drifting borders in the Mediterranean space. The talk, in French, will be held in room A11 on Lugano Campus, at 6:30 pm.

This talk about drifting borders will allow to reflect on the evolutions of the border form, of its spatial dynamics and the migration flows. The contemporary Mediterranean is characterised by a movement between concentration and at a same time of expansion. European borders, as migrant boats, are still adrift. Camille Schmoll has edited, with Nathalie Bernadie-Tahir, the volume Méditerranée: des frontières à la dérive (2018). 

The conference is part of “Beyond chaos. Geopolitical and cultural configurations of the Middle East Mediterranean”, the new series organised by the MEM Freethinking Platform, the USI initiative led by Professor Gilles Kepel with the aim of encouraging analysis and debate on the region. The title is inspired by Prof. Kepel latest book and evokes the chaotic and changing situation of the region, while suggesting new narratives and potential ways to face current challenges. The series will feature public lectures from Prof. Kepel and presentations by experts in the region.
