2020 ABS Summer Virtual Seminars

Borders in the time of COVID-19

June 3-5, 2020 

The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 forced the ABS to cancel the 2020 annual meeting in Portland, and it is making many of us stay safe at home and reduce our social interactions to a minimum. That does not stop our work and the need to engage in knowledge exchange and critical debates about borders and bordering processes.

In light of this, the ABS Board decided to facilitate a summer webinar series to support the membership and wider global ABS community to share their ongoing research and engage in the academic discussion of emerging issues.
