Short description

The event is co-organized by the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy, the Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence and the European Movement in Serbia on 12-14 October 2016, Hyatt Regency Hotel, Belgrade, Serbia. The deadline for applications is 20 March 2016.

The organizers of the Belgrade Security Forum (BSF) are pleased to invite scholars and researchers to submit paper proposals for the BSF academic event entitled “Migration, Security and Solidarity within Global Disorder”. This year’s academic event will be held on 12 October 2016, with the aim of exploring how theories and theoretical frameworks within various fields in the social sciences and humanities can contribute to the solution of the current migrant and refugee crisis.

In 2015, over a million migrants and refugees reached Europe in what has been estimated to be the worst refugee crisis since the aftermath of the Second World War. The response of European countries to the wave of mass migration was not harmonized, and existing EU asylum legislation has proved inadequate to deal with a crisis of such magnitude. The current migrant and refugee crisis therefore requires receiving countries to carefully rethink their approaches to combating poverty and tackling inequality.

Drawing on insights from Security Studies, Political Science, European Studies, Legal Studies, Migration Studies, Sociology, Anthropology and other disciplines, this conference will seek to address the implications of the current migrant and refugee crisis for the perception of the EU as a “Normative Power” and a “Community of Values”, conceptual challenges to the Common European Asylum System, securitization of immigration and the rise of right-wing populism and Islamophobia in the EU, the migrant and refugee crisis between international, EU and member states’ asylum laws.
