About the project

Since 09/2020 IN:EX is part of the BordEUr research network. This recently launched network of nine universities addresses the impact of recent developments in the EU's and its member states' bordering practices, how these practices are framed, and how the assigned meanings potentially clash with the EU's identity as an international actor. The project is coordinated by the Center for European Neighborhood Studies (CENS) at the Central European University (CEU).

IN:EX will specifically study the development of Austrian border policies since the country's accession to the European Union and the Schengen Area starting from 1995. Particular attention will be given to the impact of two recent events, namely the political crisis of migration governance in 2015 and the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020/2021.
