Eksternalizacjia - an online photo exhibition about the Balkan route
Eksternalizacjia, externalisation, describes the shifting of EU external borders beyond the geographical territory. The European policy of migration prevention does not stop at the European external borders. Through cooperation with transit countries and countries of origin, people on the move are to be prevented already on their way to the European territory.
Along the south-eastern land border of the EU, inhumane living conditions, restricted access to basic rights, violence and illegal pushbacks are the consequence and daily reality of people of people searching for security and a life in dignity.
This photo exhibition illustrates the consequences of European migration policy in the Western Balkan region for people whose movement is controlled by borders.
