Exterritory Project Symposiums:
The symposiums are an ongoing endeavor, we wish to bring together and distribute a wide range of existing research on Extraterritoriality as well encourage the production of new thought.  These lectures are always given in open to the public events, taking place in different places in the world, inviting participants from different disciplines to contribute their interpretation to the concept. The final out come of these will be an edited collection of essays on extraterritoriality, exploring its different manifestations, searching for ways in which the notion of extraterritoriality is imagined, articulated, understood, preformed and generated in different discourses and practices while searching for its critical and conceptual potential.
