Building: Adam Smith Floor: 7 Room: 711
This panel aims to offer novel empirical and theoretical perspectives to contemporary border security studies. In particular, empirically, it will try to stimulate discussions around multiple mechanisms of regulation related to various types of border crossing - migration management, control of the movement of goods and services, collection of excise tax, prevention of smuggling of drugs, weapons, endangered species and other illegal or hazardous goods and materials, the spread of human or animal diseases and related areas. Theoretically, it will attempt to link more conventional border studies with innovative approaches such as the concept of borderlands, engage in critical discussions of border security discourse produced by various actors and bring to the front the role played in contemporary border security by various global and/or international governors.
