Your Call: Refugees and the right to move
On the Oct 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with University of Hawaii Geography Professor Reece Jones about his new book Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move.
Over the past decade, 40,000 people died trying to cross international borders. Reece argues these deaths are not exceptional; they’re the result of state attempts to contain the population and control access to resources. Email your questions and comments about the refugee crisis to feedback@yourcallradio and join the conversation live at 10am with Rose Aguilar and you.
Reece Jones, Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and author of Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move
