International Symposium on Borders at the Gibraltar Garrison Library between 26th and 28th September 2019

A symposium titled ‘Borders and Bordering in the 21st Century’ will be opened at the Gibraltar Garrison Library later this month by the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia.

The event has been organised by Dr Jennifer Ballantine Perera together with the Office of the Deputy Chief Minister.

Discussions throughout this symposium will be dedicated towards Brexit and borders, certainly the Gibraltar and Irish borders; the closure of the border in 1969; migrations; the neutral ground between borders; the perceived breakdown of authority and good governance; the protection of and security measures at borders together with their corresponding theoretical underpinnings.

The event will be formally opened by the Deputy Chief Minister Dr Joseph Garcia on Thursday 26th September 2019 at 5.00 pm at the Gibraltar Garrison Library.

The symposium will run from Thursday 26th - Saturday 28th September 2019. Sessions for Friday 27th and Saturday 28th will be from 9.30 am to 5.00pm.

This event is open to the public and the entrance is free of charge.
