Scholars have turned to militant research methodologies in order to challenge the project of migration studies which was thought to participate in the state's gaze of migration - turning migrants into the objects of study, surveillance and discipline.
By contrasting domains of 'knowledge' with the day-to-day knowledge-practices of migrant-activists and their supporters, militiant research seeks to disrupt the governmental regimes of migration knowledge and create knowledges that was equipped for supporting the struggle against borders and their violence (Garelli and Tazzioli, 2013).
This workshop intends to continue the conversation around the promise of militant research in border and migration studies - centering on methodological questions: How does research on borders and migration resist/reinforce the state's gaze? What are militant research methodologies in/against migration studies? What can doing militant research on borders and migration teach us? What are the ethical entanglements implied in pursuing such a project in neoliberal academia?
