Jasna Čapo gave a lecture on contemporary refugee crises at the University of Tübingen

Jasna Čapo gave a lecture at the Special Research Area Project 923 Threatened Orders (Sonderforschungsbereich 923 Bedrohte Ordnungen), at Eberhard Karl University in Tuebingen on April 29, 2016

The invited lecture, entitled The security-scape of a refugee camp: managing the refugee flow through Croatia in 2015, was given in the framework of a Special Research Area Project studying Threatened Orders from a variety of perspectives. It discussed the contemporary refugee crisis and specifically its management along the so called ‘Balkan Route’ in the autumn and winter of 2015.  The author has demonstrated that the framing of the refugee flow as a security threat to the local population did not have a real background in the responses by the local population in rural and urban areas of Croatia.
