The international conference „B/ORDERS IN MOTION - Current Challenges and Future Perspectives” is organized by the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION and takes place on the German-Polish border at the European University of Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder) and the Collegium Polonicum in Słubice from November 15-17, 2018.

Emanating from completed and ongoing research at the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION as well as from current and future-oriented developments within border and boundary studies, the conference offers space for exchange and enhancement of conceptual and theoretical approaches and their application in empirical research.

Four topical foci will inform the discussions:

-    Un/Making Borders and Boundaries

-    Borderless Labor – Labor across Borders

-    Migrating Borders & Boundaries

-    Territorial Borders: The Institutionalization of Crossings.

Additionally, the questions of current challenges and future perspectives of the B/ORDERS IN MOTION research agenda will be discussed at two round tables. The contributions of international and Viadrina-based researchers will add to an appraisal of ongoing and completed research projects hosted by the Viadrina Center B/ORDERS IN MOTION while exploring future directions in b/order-related research.
