Professor Loren Landau will present this seminar hosted by the African Centre for Migration & Society.

Landau will consider how Europe’s defensive posturing and extra-territorialisation will reshape its relationship to Africa and Africans’ relations to each other and space. He argues that the billions of Euros dedicated to border control and the prevention of mobility within and out of African countries is generating a ‘containment chronotrope’.
