This text is part of a series of posts addressing the issue of ‘borders’ and globalisation. A while back, we interviewed Heath Cabot on her upcoming book ‘On the Doorsteps of Europe’ which documents the Greek asylum crisis from the entry point of bureaucracy and paperwork. This was followed by a short text written by Ghassan Hage on the dynamics of class involved in border-crossing. Today, Barak Kalir discusses the specific issue of ‘deportation’ and demonstrates how such policies are often implemented with the implicit support of actors who are traditionally perceived as ‘the good guys’, namely NGOs and human rights activists.
