Sea rescue is not a crime

Recent attempts to criminalise sea rescuers show one thing above all: the entry of migrants should be prevented by all means. After the confiscation of the ship Iuventa owned by Jugend rettet, the ship Open Arms of the NGO Proactiva Open Arms has now also been confiscated and members of the crew are accused of "facilitating illegal migration". We demand a human response to migratory movements! As long as there are no safe escape routes, death in the Mediterranean will not stop either.

Fluchtort Ägäis

The brochure "Safe Passage - Rüstungsexporte und Migratiosabwehr" takes an exemplary look at the Aegean region. With the EU-Turkey Agreement of 2016, the Aegean region is a blueprint for the EU's current policy of sealing off the EU: the expansion of military surveillance and the securitisation of refugee policy, cooperation with states that disregard democracy and human rights, and the relocation of migration processing to third countries. borderline-europe reports in the section "Fluchtort Ägäis" (p. 6 - 11) about the situation on the ground, about arrivals in Greece and deaths in the Aegean Sea, the EU-Turkey Agreement, imprisonment, deportation and criminalization.

Biometric Technology and Iris Scanning in Jordan

Biometric technologies generally refer to the use of technology to identify a person based on some aspect of their biology. Fingerprint recognition is one of the first and original biometric technologies that have been grouped loosely under digital forensics. In 2013, Iris scanning has been introduced by the British-Jordanian Iris Biometrics company IrisGuard in refugee camp management. UNHCR Jordan was the first operation to introduce iris-scanning biometrics to assist in refugee registration. Today, 98% of registered Syrians are processed using biometric technology. This innovative technology has gained a lot of popularity among service providers; on one hand, World Food Program WFP believes that it secures transparency, saves time and money and on the other hand, many critics believe that it could put vulnerable people's lives in danger.
