New research article published in European Journal of International Security


A new full-length research article by Georg Lofflmann and Nick Vaughan-Williams has been published online by the European Journal of International Security (EJIS) - a new journal supported by the British International Studies Association (BISA) and published by Cambridge University Press.

The article, entitled 'Vernacular imaginaries of European border security among citizens: From walls to information management', is based on two years of underpinning research into how diverse publics construct the so-called "migration crisis", conceptualise border security, and narrate their own identity in relation to it.

The online first version of the article can be accessed here.
