Die Torwächter der Europäischen Union: Der Sudan nach El-Bashir
Five years ago, borderline-europe organized its first externalization conference in Berlin. We scrutinized the treaties, agreements and control mechanisms which were established to seal off the borders of the EU. In 2012, the European Union was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Ten years later, people are still drowning in the Mediterranean Sea and dying of thirst crossing the deserts – because there still are no safe escape routes. Under the rule of dictator Omar El-Bashir, Sudan has played a crucial role in securing the borders that have been outsourced to Africa. The country has become Europe’s gatekeeper for refugees and migrants from East Africa and other parts of the world. With the 2019 revolution, hope of a new democratic government emerged in Sudan. The 2021 coup shattered this hope. What is the situation today? This brochure is the result of a joint event with Bildungswerk Berlin of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Africa Center for Justice and Peace Studies in Karthoum. It discusses the status today and which consequences the countercoup has had for people on the move.
