Abstract

The ‘refugee’ crisis in Europe fuels an emotional public and political debate. Recent events, such as the Cologne attacks, the drowning of the 3-year old Syrian boy in Turkey as well as terrorist attacks in several Europe cities trigger extremism, but they also prompt citizens to organize in solidarity. This roundtable sheds light on the intersectional mechanisms that influence political responses to the crisis and reflects on their consequences. Spanning the subfields of international politics and gender- and queer studies speakers ask: how are refugees selected at the border? What kind of ethical, methodological and theoretical challenges do gender and sexuality scholars face in their research on refugees today? Should scholars, and if so how, take a pro-active role in public debate?
