The second ERIM colloquium was held on March 2nd 2022, at the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research (Zagreb). The associate of the SASA Institute of Ethnography, Teodora Jovanović, presented her work, “Forced (Im) Mobilities En Route: ‘Justified’ Violence of the Border Regime in Balkans”, which was recently published. This work is the result of ethnographic field research that the author conducted as part of the ERIM project. It has the aim of reviewing the levels of experience of various actors of irregular migrations: people on the move (refugees and migrants); the members of local communities; employees and the representatives of the local authorities; international and other organizations. 

The ERIM research project, which is coordinated by the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research and financed by the Croatian Science Foundation (IP 2019-04-6642), addresses the observation and analyses of irregularized migrations in a transnational area shaped by migration movements. The project comprises researchers from Croatia (Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zagreb, Academy of Music University of Zagreb), Slovenia (Faculty of Social Work, University of Ljubljana, and Faculty of Philosophy University of Ljubljana) and Serbia (SASA Institute of Ethnography).
