This symposium aims to discuss, examine and share ideas that move beyond the common understanding of smuggling as a criminal and mafia controlled enterprise through posing complex but necessary questions such as:

– How does a smuggler see states, borders and economy beyond the ways in which the state wishes us to see and recognise them?

– What is the liminal spaces appearing between formal and informal economies in the context of smuggling?

– How does smuggling rely on the vulnerability of the material and technological infrastructures by producing shadow temporary infrastructures?

– What does smuggling teach us about states, borders and mobility beyond the dominant legal frameworks?
