Dr Ruben Andersson will be in dialogue with Professor Myria Georgiou to discuss Andersson’s book No Go World: how fear is redrawing our maps and infecting our politics.

 In his book Ruben Andersson explores how Western states and international organisations conduct military, aid, and border interventions in a dangerously myopic fashion, disconnecting the world’s rich and poor.

Ruben Andersson is an anthropologist and Associate Professor at Oxford University’s Department of International Development, and is the author of Illegality, Inc.: Clandestine migration and the business of bordering Europe, winner of the 2015 BBC Ethnography Award.

Myria Georgiou is Professor of Media and Communications in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE. She holds a PhD in Sociology from LSE, an MSc in Journalism from Boston University and a BA in Sociology from Panteion University, Athens. Her research focuses on media and the city; urban technologies and politics of connection; and the ways in which migration and diaspora are politically, culturally and morally constituted in the context of mediation. 

Erik Berglof (@ErikBerglof) became the inaugural Director of the Institute of Global Affairs (IGA) in February 2015. He joined the School as a Professor in Practice in the Department of Economics.

The Institute of Global Affairs (@LSEIGA) aims to maximise the impact of LSE's leading expertise across the social sciences by shaping inclusive and locally-rooted responses to the most important and pressing global challenges.
