On the 25th of February, Dr. Joris Schapendonk will give a lecture, exploring the lifeworlds of the African ‘movers’ in Europe. He will discuss transnational movements, asylum, belonging, and borders. His work aims to understand how flexible mobilities relate to migratory projects, and how identities change along pathways of movements. By following the im/mobility trajectories of individuals coming from The Gambia, Senegal, Cameroon and Nigeria, Dr. Schapendonk’s empirical findings show how mobility remains central to their being in Europe, despite the existence of harsh mobility regimes that aim to hamper, stop or control their mobilities.
