Summer School - Territorial Sovereignty in the Age of Migration, 9 - 13 July 2018, Hungary

Territorial Sovereignty in the Age of Migration

The importance of territory in the current world order is undeniable.  Recent years have seen an explosion of empirical and normative scholarly interest on the impact of migration, globalization and state succession on territorial sovereignty across many disciplines. In addition to the more “traditional” territorial disputes, mass migration has raised new dilemmas over territorial ownership, peoplehood and statehood. 

The main aim of the course is to familiarize participants (advanced MA students, PhD students, and young researchers) with the normative dilemmas of and political struggles over territorial sovereignty and ownership of territory in the contemporary world. The course provides an overview of some of the main topical issues and scholarly perspectives in the social sciences, with special but not exclusive attention to the politics of territorial closure, extra-territorial governance, territorial conflict, state recognition and minority rights. Through the comparative analyses of different cases in and outside Europe, the course seeks to familiarize participants with the different normative frameworks of territorial exclusion and the political claim-making strategies in territorial disputes. In the case studies presented, a special attention is given to the role of state, sub-state and supra-state actors in territorial conflict and minority rights legislation.

Target group

Applications are invited worldwide from PhD students, researchers, and very advanced MA students. 

Language requirement

The language of instruction is English, thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops. Some of the shortlisted applicants may be contacted for a telephone interview.
