Episode 23: With Dr. Hannah Pool on her research at the Max Planck Institute, European refugee policy and illegal pushbacks at the EU’s external borders

TW: migration, asylum seeking, boarders, death

For this episode, our hosts invited DialoguePerspectives alumna Dr. Hannah Pool to discuss the issues of migration, refugees and illegal pushbacks at the EU’s external borders. Dr. Hannah Pool is a senior researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies. Her research focuses on the intersection of mobilities, money, and borders.

In this episode, Hannah shares her insights about her multifarious experience i.a. working in the Mória Refugee Camp on the Greek island of Lesbos and the current death toll at the EU’s external borders. Furthermore, they address the discrepancy between the actual living conditions of people before or during flight and the way these conditions are debated on the political level.
