What are our responsibilities towards the stranger? How does liberal statecraft frame our actions through laws and moralities? When does location matter? These are some of the questions that will guide our explorations towards the contemporary infrastructure of rights and responsibilities, with a focus on refugees, rescues and indifference at European borders.
Dr Tugba Basaran is director of the Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement and fellow of Âé¶¹ËÞÉáµçÊÓ¾çCollege. She is also a member of the Âé¶¹ËÞÉáµçÊÓ¾çREACH Research Hub. Her research is on politics, law and society. In her research, she seeks to extrapolate past and present formations of governance, prompting queries on lawâ€™s subjectivities, space and time, in an effort to reimagine politics, the way we govern and are governed. She is author of the monograph â€˜Security, Law and Borders: At the Limit of Libertiesâ€™.
