Criminalization of Migration & Solidarity in Italy

In the course of the collective attempt to shut down its borders, the EU uses numerous means of deterrence to prevent people from seeking safety in Europe.

Denmark-Rwanda deal: deporting people, outsourcing & offshoring asylum

In September 2022, Denmark and Rwanda signed an agreement on the possible transfer of asylum seekers to the East African country. The prospective ‘transfer-system’ resembles the one announced by the UK in April. About 1,000 people may be deported yearly to a country thousands of kilometres away where refugees are killed and forcibly recruited by militias. After fleeing their countries, crossing borders, and risking their lives to reach a safe place, people are pushed back into a state of imminent danger. Learn more about the prospective Denmark-Rwanda deal, as well as its possible implications, in this article.
