‘Where is humanity?’ was the slogan that in early September this year, migrants and asylum seekers at Safi immigration-detention centre in Malta were desperately yelling to the world. The nexus inhumanity-immigration detention is not a new phenomenon.

Presentation of UAI-UK

Dr Helia López Zarzosa, Sociologist
