More than ever before, questions of movement, displacement and belonging, equality and inequality, borders and otherness have become hot-button issues worldwide. Public law--whether domestic, European or international--structures practices of inclusion and exclusion, borders and boundaries, and line-drawing in a variety of ways.

The analysis and assessment of how that happens, for what purposes and with what effects, was the focus of the 2016 ICON∙S Conference on "Borders, Otherness and Public Law" that was organized by the WZB Center for Global Constitutionalism in cooperation with the International Society of Public Law (ICON∙S) and Humboldt University Berlin, with the NYU Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law and Justice and the Istituto di Ricerche sulla Pubblica Amministrazione (IRPA) as further partners.

Video recordings of all plenary events of the 2016 ICON-S Conference on “Borders, Otherness and Public Law” are available on the WZB Berlin Social Science Center's YouTube channel and are also accessible below.
