IF MY CONTINENT WEREN’T SO RUTHLESS WITH AFRICAN “ECONOMIC” REFUGEES

PART 2: HALF-HIDDEN VIOLENCE (3/2020)

African “economic” refugees come up against a European administrative nightmare as soon as they enter this continent. They are faced with administrative violence purposely designed to discourage, overwhelm, stress and at times traumatize them. The European Union and its member States have carefully crafted administrative procedures for this type of illegal refugees. They use them as part of a psychological warfare against them.

IF MY CONTINENT WEREN’T SO RUTHLESS WITH AFRICAN “ECONOMIC” REFUGEES

PART 1: WIDESPREAD CONTEMPT (12/2019)

What kind of respect do African “economic” refugees get in international law implemented across the European Union? All European Union member States relegate a huge majority of refugees fleeing squalor, malnutrition, the impacts of climate change and environmental disasters, the lack of arable land or decent healthcare in only one category: that, precisely, of “economic” migrants or refugees, by definition unworthy of genuine respect. As such, they can be deported back to their country of origin.

IF MY CONTINENT WEREN’T SO RUTHLESS WITH AFRICAN “ECONOMIC” REFUGEES

If my continent weren’t so ruthless with African “economic” refugees is a wide-ranging investigation in three parts. It begins with Widespread contempt, continues with Half-hidden violence and ends with Empire of rejection. This investigation primarily addresses the migrations of African “economic” refugees to the European Union (EU) within the broader context of migrations from non-EU countries. It dissects the way in which the EU deals with this issue while focusing on the French position. It scrutinizes the actions of the EU and its member States both at the external borders of the EU and in Africa, explaining how these actions are connected with the current situation of refugees. This piece of investigative journalism encompasses a lot of original facets. Among them, it examines some overlooked economic causes of migrations; it analyzes the political ideas of people who help refugees; it gives an overview of France’s vital resources to welcome millions of “economic” refugees.
