Facets of uneven development in the European border regime: The economic geographies of migrant camps in Greece

Thursday, November 26, 2020
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Join SNID for a talk by Dr. Panos Hatziprokopiou, chaired by Dr. Reena Kukreja.

In the aftermath of the so-called “refugee crisis” of 2015-16, the migration regime consolidating in Europe entails the management of newcoming populations through their accommodation in camps. This talk will account for neglected aspects of this process in the case of Greece, focusing on the everyday economic practices, interactions and networks emerging in, around and because of camps. Drawing on examples from recent filed research, it will highlight the “productive” functions and economic geographies of migrant camps.

Dr Panos Hatziprokopiou is Assistant Professor at the School of Spatial Planning & development, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He has studied economics, sociology and human geography in Greece and the UK. His research interests focus on socio-spatial aspects of migrants’ settlement, labour market pathways, housing geographies and everyday interactions. 

Dr Reena Kukreja is Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University. She is cross-appointed to the Department of Gender Studies and the Cultural Studies Program at Queen’s University. Her current SSHRC funded work examines the intersections of masculinity, sexuality, securitization of borders and religious fundamentalism on the lives of undocumented South Asian men in Greece.
