The management and control of migration as well as the protection of state borders against irregular migration are increasingly supported by digital infrastructures. These new forms of coordination and control instruments partially replace and relocate traditional forms of state border practices linked to geo-political spaces. In contrast, migrants apply digital devices in order to pass state borders, to build up transnational networks, and to stay in contact with family and acquaintances living at a distance. Starting with this interrelationship concerning the digital dimension of migration, in this summer school we want to generate a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the relevance and use of digital technologies in multilevel processes which reshape the notion and location of the border itself and the way in which migration is dealt with.

The summer school aims at graduate and advanced students worldwide (20 places). As the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) supports this year´s summer school, there is no registration fee. Costs for accommodation and travelling are covered and will be reimbursed when original receipts are handed in. The participants will be accommodated in a dormitory (single room) located in close-by Słubice (Poland). A daily lunch at the refectory is provided.
