We hosted a workshop in Barcelona on the 6th and 7th of May, as an opportunity to discuss the ongoing refugees and asylum policy crises in Europe. The event was organised by the Green European Foundation, in collaboration with Fundació Nous Horitzons.
Borders are back! After 60 years of peace in Europe and the gradual abolition of its internal borders, Europe is now experiencing the full force of the backlash. National borders are once again being heralded as the essential panacea for the multiple crises which have shaken Europe right down to the depths of its foundations. This threatens the hard-won gains of Schengen and of European integration at its very heart. In response to these developments, the Green European Journal dedicates its 12th volume to new analyses and perspectives on the issue. New thinking on borders for new thinking on Europe!
