This presentation was part of the EMBRACE research project, funded by IRC New Foundations. The presentation focused on border externalisation in the form of land and sea surveillance, the erection of walls, offshore detention, accelerated deportations and increasing hostility towards people seeking protection. It highlighted how border violence has become deeply entrenched in a politics of border enforcement both in the EU and on a global scale. The EMBRACE project places a focus on these frontiers of border militarisation, with a specific focus on the EU Mediterranean border and the case of Ireland.
