MODULE 4. Borders

From 5 to 21 May 2022

Module 4 is based on the complexity of the processes of human movement, migration and borders, phenomena that challenge institutional logic and put our democracies to the test. It seeks to address current migratory movements and the real situation of vulnerability in which most migrants find themselves, and how to deal with the situation of economic and social helplessness of people seeking international asylum. On its causes and impacts, on the right to migrate and to asylum, on the violation of human rights, on mortality at the borders, and on Europe’s role in its management, often in contravention of universal commitments. It looks to address the urgency of eradicating racism, xenophobia and hate speech for the improvement of our democratic societies and the reconstruction of geopolitical relations based on principles of responsibility and global justice. In short, to rethink and deconstruct the power relations and self-granted Western privileges with which we regulate and order the world. Because we are facing one of our greatest challenges as a society: the construction of a just and sustainable world, where the safety, dignity, rights and fundamental freedoms of humanity are respected.
