Figures like American President Donald Trump and Hungary’s Viktor Orban have blamed foreigners for the spread of COVID-19, exacerbating anti-migrant racism and stoking the politics of militarised borders. EU States have used the crisis to turn away more rescue ships, making the Mediterranean even deadlier for refugees. The ‘necropolitics’ of border militarization that justifies systemic crimes against humanity has become tragically hegemonic.Join a unique panel for an in-depth discussion of the globalization of border militarization, the history, ideologies and actors that have shaped it, and the policies underpinning the border industrial complex.The panel will also higlight the different forms of resistance by migrants, refugees and activists. Post-pandemic, how can we forge a different path that rejects inhumane border politics, welcomes refugees and migrants, provides full citizenship rights to the undocumented, and embraces the dignity of all human beings?17 June 2020 at 4pm CEST.Register(Spanish interpretation will be available)Panellists
