Towards a New Agenda for Border Studies

13 au 15 février 2024 - February 13 to 15, 2024

Fez, Morroco

The Political Studies and Public Law Laboratory at Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University in Fez (USMBA) in collaboration
with the Center for Geopolitical Studies – Raoul-Dandurand Chair at the University of Québec at Montréal (UQAM) and the
University of Eastern Finland is organizing an event entitled «Towards a new agenda for border studies», to be held in Fez,
Morocco, on February 13-15, 2024. This event will bring together scholars from various disciplines and backgrounds to
substantially rethink how we address the evolution of border(ing) processes, practices and related theories by decentering
the analysis hitherto produced essentially in the North. To encourage increased participation of scholars from the South,
and to foster more balanced, multivocal discussion on the topic, the event will be organized in Fez, Morocco.
The general objective of the conference is to lay the foundations for a new agenda of border studies that can benefit
the border studies community as a whole. It is also about helping to forge closer links between researchers from distinct
geographical areas that tend to coexist but rarely cross paths, and to benefit fully from these exchanges. The conference
will be held in English, French and Arabic.
