Death by Rescue: The deadly effects of the EUís policy of non-assistance at sea
Monday 18 April 2016
The Mosaic Rooms, A.M. Qattan Foundation, 226 Cromwell Road,, London, GB.
A meeting to launch the first report of the ESRC/DFID funded 'Precarious Trajectories' research project on the Mediterranean migration crisis.
One year after two successive shipwrecks that occurred while migrants were being rescued and led to the death of more than 1200 people, the report mobilizes cutting edge spatial analysis technologies to shed new light on the conditions that led to these tragedies. It focuses in particular on the responsibility of EU agencies and policy makers, demonstrating that through their policy of non-assistance they knowingly created the conditions that led to massive loss of life in these cases of death by rescue.
Introductions by the Project Director, Dr Simon Parker, University of York and Prof. Eyal Weizman, Director of the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths, London University.
Presentation by the authors of the report:
Charles Heller and Lorenzo Pezzani (Goldsmiths/University of York).
Lord Roger Roberts of Llandudno
Tony Bunyan, Director, Statewatch
Followed by Q & A and reception.
