Everyday practices and identity constructions in the field of tension of refugee camps. Surveillance, governmentality and action strategies.


Tobias Breuckmann is researching the local negotiation of the EU border regime in and around the Hot Spot Camp on Lesvos, Greece in his current PhD project. The theoretical basis is the theory of governmentality, with a corresponding focus on the mutual and dynamic negotiation of government practices. With a view to social and political geography, the question of how spaces of governance are (re)constructed and which counter-spaces in the sense of stubborn migrations are created in interaction is examined in particular.
