Beschreibung
The project investigates assemblages in the field of border-transcending medical practices. The case studies focus especially on cross-border cooperation in the provision of health care and on the conflictive negotiation of organ transplantation. Here we enquire about the function and meaning of „space“ in transnational assemblages of medical practices. By studying the de-bordering of the supply and demand of therapeutic services, spatializations under conditions of globalization can be better understood together with the impact they have on biopolitical regimes in Western welfare states, which are subject to national-territorial regulation. These national-territorial regulations emerge from the commodification of (individual) health and therapy while being conflictingly transormed through the greater organizational and institutional reach of medical actors and actions as well as technical, pharmacological, biological, and biochemical innovations. De-bordering is often a response to global mobilizations of labour markets, people, goods, and finances.
