IFES Working Paper Series

The second issue of the IFES Working Paper Series is now online

“Europe and the Biopolitical Schism. Material and Symbolic Boundaries of the EU Border Regime“ by Estela Schindel is the second issue of the IFES Working Paper Series.

The publication series aims at disseminating first results of ongoing research projects in order to encourage the exchange of ideas and academic debate. The current issue's main claim is that - through the displacement of unwanted non-European travelers to the realm of ‘nature’ - European borders are being produced, both materially and symbolically, along the fault line ‘culture’/’technology’ and ‘nature,’ where illegalized travelers trying to enter the continent are perceived as less technologically developed and therefore less compatible with Western civilization
