Outsourcing Europe's Borders
Speakers: Apostolis Fotiadis (researcher), Rahmane Idrissa (political scientist), Muhammad al-Kashef (human rights lawyer and migration activist), Angela Melitopoulos (artist/filmmaker), Nandita Sharma (activist scholar)
This programme brings together activists, legal practitioners, artists and researchers to explore the rapid externalisation of Europe’s borders under EU policy, relating these strategies to ongoing colonial practices of extraction and domination. The discussion will focus on how border externalisation systematically violates human rights, how the strategy exists in a legal grey zone, as well as the ways it affects neighbouring countries. The programme aims to critically examine the effects of border externalisation while situating such strategies historically, theoretically and politically.
Hosted by Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, Athens.
