Accepted Paper:

Conflict space as sites of refugee reception  
Olga Demetriou (University of Durham)

Paper short abstract:

Whereas conflict spaces have often been approached as sites of potentiality with respect to reconciliation initiatives, I want to discuss what happens when these sites become first reception locations for refugees. How are structures of reception and of conflict imbricated in one another when conflict is the place that refugees land in and not just what they flee from? What does this mean for possibilities of resistance and collaboration in a highly disparaging context that we are seeing today? I will draw on previous research in Cyprus and specifically the island’s Green Line and the British bases.
