Humanitarian Borders: Unequal Mobility and the Need to Save Lives

Dr. Polly Pallister-Wilkins (University of Amsterdam)

This lecture focuses on the relationship between unequal mobility regimes, violent borders and the humanitarian response they engender. Drawing on research with Médecins Sans Frontières the lecture pays attention to the diverse ways humanitarianism responds to unequal mobility and violent borders and how humanitarian action is challenged and changed in the process.
