This talk will compare how Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and Egypt have shaped waves of recent migration from the Middle East and North Africa to European and other western countries. It will explore how the structural adjustment policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have contributed to forced displacement, along with wars and military conflicts. How are global power relations reproduced in the crises that turn workers and peasants into migrants and refugees, driving an increasing number of people to risk life and limb to cross the Mediterranean?
This event is free and open to the public.
