  Add to Calendar 2016-06-07 15:00 2016-06-07 17:00 Europe/Paris BORDERLANDS Talk: Freedom Trail: Fences, Camps and Refugees in the EU’s South-Eastern Borderlands

By presenting videos and photos collected during a field mission in the south-eastern borders of Europe, this talk focuses on the gradual fortification of European borders, an on-going process since the end of 2015. Against this backdrop we will analyse the current political and humanitarian crisis in the refugee camps (such as Idomeni, Eko Station, Nea Kavala and Tabanovce) located along the Western Balkan migratory route in Slovenia, Macedonia and Greece. The talk aims to present the multiple facets of the on-going refugee crisis in the European borderlands as experienced during the field mission to the camps. We will document and discuss the dramatic living conditions faced by thousands of refugees, but also the astonishing degree of humanity, solidarity, and resilience of the refugees who are stranded in camps along the south-eastern European borders. Photos taken during this field mission will also be shown in the exhibition in the Cloister.
