Abstract
In this talk, Saskia Stachowitsch explores how risk analysis in European border security functions as a sense-making security practice that is deeply political. With a focus on the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex), she investigates how gender and race matter in constituting the “riskiness” of migrants as well as the notion of “migration crisis”. As a contribution to emerging debates on race and racism in security studies, she argues for an intersectional approach that reveals how understandings of crisis are linked to the reproduction of gendered and racialized stereotypes, identities and inequalities.
