Pushbacks, human rights violations, criminalisation of asylum seekers shape the everyday lives of people on the move: this lecture explores how the land and sea borders of Greece developed into lawlessness zone, where illegal acts are committed in plain sight, but there is no one to see. The talk will address recent developments also regarding the freedom of the press and the increasing criminalisation of solidarity in Greece.
