No borders? Exclusion, justice and the politics of fear. 39th Annual Conference of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control


No borders? Exclusion, justice and the politics of fear
39th Annual Conference of the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control
3rd - 7th September 2011
Université de Savoie
Chambéry, France

CALL FOR PAPERS
It is often asserted that neoliberal globalisation had the liberating effect of breaking down boundaries as barriers to free trade were swept away. Yet, ‘actually existing neoliberalism’ (Brenner and Theodore, 2002) has in reality seen the erection of a host of new boundaries and the reinforcement of old ones. Boundaries continue to be a salient feature of the contemporary political, geographical and social landscape. National boundaries have been reinforced, particularly in the European security state as ever-stricter immigration controls are adopted. Boundaries are also being redrawn between those considered to be ‘deserving’ of citizenship and those who are not, leading to the reinforcement of class distinctions and the persecution of minority groups.  As Jock Young asserted in 1999, there has indeed been a distinct move towards an ‘exclusive society’ in which divisions are actively promoted and exploited by politicians seeking short-term electoral gain. The aim of this conference will be to challenge the politics of fear and to move beyond boundaries of all kinds. How can we transcend traditional academic boundaries in favour of an interdisciplinary approach to problems of crime and punishment capable of encapsulating notions of social harm? How solid are the boundaries which exist between the ‘deviant’ and the ‘normal’? How can we promote freedom of movement of peoples across physical and metaphysical boundaries? How can justice be promoted in an exclusive society?

Conference venue and travel arrangements
The picturesque town of Chambéry is the administrative and cultural capital of the department of Savoie in the Rhône-Alpes region. It is siutated on the banks of the beautiful ‘Lac du Bourget’, the largest fresh-water lake in France (http://www.bourgetdulactourisme.com), and surrounded by two Alpine mountain ranges, the ‘Massif des Bauges’ (http://www.parcdesbauges.com/) and the ‘Chartreuse’ (http://www.chartreuse-tourisme.com/fr). A coach trip to the Chartreuse mountains and the famous liqueur cellars will be organised during the conference (further details of excursion below).
 
The town of Chambéry is dominated by its impressive 11th Century chateau, home to the Dukes of Savoie until 1860 when the region was annexed to France. The Italian influence is still evident in the town’s architecture, notably in the covered archways which line its main street.
     The town is small and easy to discover on foot. The old part of town, with its veritable labyrinth of medieval streets, is not to be missed.
     A trip to Chambéry is also an opportunity to discover many regional culinary specialties including cured meats and mountain cheeses, local wines and a number of local liqueurs made from mountain herbs and flowers.
Chambéry is easy to access, situated at the crossroads between France, Italy and Switzerland. It is located just 98 km from Lyon, 57 km from Grenoble and 90 km from Geneva. There are airports in all three of these cities, including a small one in Chambéry itself. There are flights from 10 cities in the UK to Chambéry (see http://www.chambery-airport.com) and flights from Stockholm, Rotterdam and Warsaw to Grenoble (http://www.grenoble-airport.com).
Geneva and Lyon airports link up to a wide range of international destinations (http://www.lyonaeroports.com/ or http://www.gva.ch/). You may travel by train (www.sncf.com) or bus (http://www.aerocar.fr/en/)  from Geneva airport, by bus and train from Grenoble airport (http://www.grenoble-airport.com/-Scheduled-coach-transfers-.html then www.sncf.com) and by bus from Lyon St. Exupéry airport (http://www.voyages-crolard.com/index.aspx). 
Chambéry airport is situated just 10 km from the town centre: you can eaither take a taxi or walk to the nearest bus-stop and join the number 9 bus route (http://www.bus-stac.fr/ftp/FR_biblio/PlanPoche%2001-07-10.pdf).  Should you wish to travel by train, Chambéry is just a 3-hour train-ride away from Paris (www.sncf.com) and 2hrs30 from Turin. You can easily link up to other European destinations via Geneva and Milan.
