Migration, Crises and Consequences in the Maghreb

When and where?


In the continuity of the DPDW Civic Space "Migration and borders: the stakes of the non-existing migratory policies" (January 2023), L'Art Rue continues its cycle of debates on migration issues with "Migration, crises and consequences in the Maghreb" Friday 24 February 2023 at 8pm online on its Facebook page. 

The debate will be conducted entirely in English.

Amid widespread post-pandemic food shortages and inflation worsened by the Ukraine conflict, the Maghreb region is facing multiple crisis, political turmoil and critical socio-economic consequences. This has not only led to migration in unprecedented numbers, but also made the conditions faced by the thousands of migrants and refugees currently stranded in the North African countries even more vulnerable with no prospect of introducing any changes to the conditions.

This panel will discuss the current situation in the Maghreb in the realm of European border management policy.
