“…the fate of migrants is becoming securitised and weaponised. When the European Parliament voted to interrupt Turkey’s EU membership ascension process and plans for visa-free travel, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened the EU that he would not stop migrants travelling to Europe ‘Listen to me: these border gates will be opened if you go any further’ (BBC, 25 November 2016).”
Following on from our discussion of the rise of anti-democacy after Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, at our next Salon Dr Mladen Pupavac and Dr Vanessa Pupavac, from the School of Politics and International Relations at The University of Nottingham, will introduce a discussion on migration based on their joint research.
Date, Time and Venue: Thursday 2 March at 7 PM in the Parlour of The Brunswick Inn, Derby.
