REOPENING EUROPE - Reopening Borders?

In June 2020, as Europe reopened after lockdown, we crossed ten national borders. We listened to diverse citizens, from passers-by to politicians, business people to artists, recording, documenting, and publishing stories.

In this second episode of Reopening Europe, we unpack some reflections about borders and the pandemic which we have collected along our journey.

Giuseppe Porcaro is joined in by Martina Tazzioli, Lecturer in Politics and Technology at Goldsmith University, London. Her work is characterized by an interdisciplinary approach to political theory, migration and border studies, and political geography. Recently, she has investigated the technologisation of the borders and how technologies constitute a battlefield for migrants, states, and non-state actors.
