About the Seminar
The functioning of borders throughout Europe has undergone significant changes during the past 30 years. While inner borders have opened, the external border of the EU has hardened, and the impact of mass immigration on the one hand, together with Brexit on the other, has led to even further changes in the way that individual states manage and control their borders.
The latest challenge to border management has come from the coronavirus, as EU member states endeavor to close their homeland spaces to almost all outsiders.
Will borders return to their pre-corona status or will they remain relatively closed in the coming years, a policy which some governments are eager to pursue? This question will be touched upon by four of the world’s leading border scholars, who will address the impact of COVID-19 on borders, with a focus on European borders.
