Sea(m)less Peninsulas? Italy, Europe and the Refugee Question  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

In this lecture Maurizio Albahari will outline the emergence of the Mediterranean Sea as the world's deadliest international border for refugees, focusing in particular on the central migratory route - between Libya and Italy - and on the military-humanitarian role of Italy's authorities and civil society. He will illustrate how the political and institutional separation between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean (Turkey and southern European Union countries such as Italy and Greece) constitutes state of affairs that can be sustained only at an unspeakable economic and human cost.

Maurizio Albahari is the author of Crimes of Peace: Mediterranean Migrations at the World's Deadliest Border. He is an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame, where he is affiliated with the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, the Center for Civil and Human Rights and Italian Studies.

Proudly presented by Michigan State University's Department of Romance and Classical Studies, with co-sponsors Center for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies; Muslim Studies & Global Studies in Arts & Humanities.
