Sketching #Guantánamo

#Janet_Hamlin has been covering Guantánamo for seven years, making more than 25 trips to the prison. Her work provides a rare and unique view into the controversial military commissions proceedings - and the only view of the small number of detainees charged with crimes (of the 164 prisoners that remain at Guantánamo, only six face formal charges). Sketching Guantánamo, a compilation of her work with accompanying essays, just hit the shelves. The artist exchanged ideas and answered questions last week over the phone and Gmail Chat conversations.

The Historic Scale of Syria’s Refugee Crisis

The Syrian refugee crisis has exploded from about 270,000 people a year ago to today’s tally of more than two million who have fled the country. The pace of the diaspora has been characterized by the United Nations as the worst since the Rwandan genocide in 1994. In addition, an estimated 4.25 million Syrians have been displaced within their country, bringing the total number forced into flight to more than six million.

Toujours plus de #murs dans le monde

Alors que l’article 13 de la déclaration universelle des droits de l’homme de 1948 proclame le droit à chacun à « circuler librement et de choisir sa résidence à l’intérieur d’un État », et à « quitter tout pays, y compris le sien et à y revenir », l’Union europenne n’a eu de cesse de déployer une myriade de dispositifs pour empêcher, ou plutôt canaliser les flux migratoires. C’est la tentation du mur. Tandis que La Grèce amorce la construction d’un mur le long de sa frontière avec la Turquie, l’Atlas des migrants en europe (2e édition) dont est issu cette carte que j’ai réalisé, nous apprend que le nombre de murs, #barrières et #clôtures dans le monde a triplé depuis la chute du mur de Berlin. En 2011, il y avait 48 murs recensés dans le monde, souvent construits dans un but affiché d’empêcher les #migrations. Cela représente plus de 30 000 kilomètres linéaire. Par ailleurs, les études montrent que ce dispositif n’empêche en aucun cas les gens de passer. La construction de murs constitue plutôt un aveu de faiblesse et une réponse inadaptée à un risque fantasmé. Comme la plupart des dispositifs mis en place par l’Union européenne dans le cadre de sa #politique_migratoire, les murs n’empêchent pas les flux, ils les détournent.

ACHR/DPU Junior Professionals Reporting from the Field

We have the privilege of being the first interns in a collaboration between the Asian Coalition of Housing Rights (ACHR) and the Bartlett Development Planning Unit (DPU). We are 5 young graduates from DPU working in Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and Philippines for 6 months, supporting the growth of ACHR in these countries. Our blog reflects on community-led development throughout South-East Asia, and the challenges faced both locally and more generally by the urban poor in their efforts to secure a place for themselves and their families within processes and mechanisms of the reproduction of the city.

Reporting on community-driven strategies to securing housing, land and a stake in (re)production processes of the city

Nationality maps for football leagues 2013-14

Following Sportingintelligence’s ‘mapping’ of the nationalities of the players in the squads in the Premier League on Saturday (see related article here), the idea has quickly spread and there are maps popping up all over the internet for different leagues, quite a few of them on Reddit.

La Guyane ou la chronique d’une mondialisation migratoire

Émigrer … Immigrer … Ce processus recouvre quatre temps : quitter, franchir la limite qui qualifie l#’étranger, puis #entrer et, enfin, #circuler. Aventure humaine aux déterminants multiples (politiques, économiques, familiaux, environnementaux), individuelle ou collective, choisie ou contrainte, elle mobilise l’ascendance et la descendance. Elle s’inscrit dans un dessein dépassant les individus dans le temps et construisant des #géographies_multipolarisées entre #pays_d’origine, d’accueil et de relais, structurées entre elles par des faisceaux de #relations (commerciaux, fiduciaires, affectifs, politiques).
