Details

Bordered Lives: How Europe fails refugees and migrants is Hsiao-Hung Pai’s landmark book in the reporting of what we know as Europe’s “refugee crisis” or “migrant crisis” - and a cry from the heart about an asylum system that is simply not fit for purpose. Pai travels to meet migrants and asylum-seekers who have just been washed up on the shores of Lampedusa and Sicily and have been absorbed into dismal reception camps. She also follows the journey of some of the people who have ended up in Western Europe. Whilst the news headlines about the “refugee crisis” focus on people smuggling and encourage a far-right response to it, Pai finds the “crisis” to be one about Europe’s response to the displaced people.
