Migration, borders, and refugees play a particular role in today’s Central European political, cultural, and social life and have developed to situations of crisis. The round table discussion is meant to analyse comparable realities in medieval Central Europe and to answer the question to which extent similar crises situations can be traced in the area during Middle Ages.
