Mobile Conflicts: Transnational Activism, Mutation and Repons

In a global world not only people, objects and images are on the move. We also have to acknowledge that various kinds of conflicts are mobile and that they spread, mutate and mobilize publics in various settings around the world, thus creating new frontiers, alliances, arguments and imaginaries.

For this seminar CESAU has invited two scholars to discuss the scope, dynamics and impact of what we could call 'Mobile Conflicts'.
