The Camp / Migration and Border Infrastructures

The Camp / Migration and Border Infrastructures


Since 2015, I have been carrying out ethnographic fieldwork in Moria and other refugee camps on Lesvos Greece, in parallel to an examination, at a larger scale, of border security and surveillance infrastructures on the Greek borders. I am interested in new or modified structures (e.g. fences, camps) on the ground or less visible infrastructures (e.g. software, surveillance systems) that mirror European policy priorities and affect the living conditions of migrants and refugees.
