11a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Two sides of a barricade
A glance at the international changes in strategy of prosecuting authorities at summit protests in the last ten years indicates their ever improved adjustment to new tactics of resistance. This workshop attempts to analyse the biopolitical dimension of European conflict management
on the basis of the history of repression since the ”Summer of Resistance“ in 2001. Thereby we will examine parallels to other areas as the repression against football fans. Based on the assumption that police forces increasingly succeed to make unexpected surprises foreseeable and providently impossible, we want to gauge in the workshop under which conditions creative resistance remains successful.
