Human Rights And Immigration Policy In Conflict

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
Five decades after the inception of the Geneva Refugee Convention, the European immigration system is on the verge of collapse as a flood of people fleeing persecution and violence threatens to engulf the E.U. This program looks at the processing of refugees and asylum-seekers in Sweden and Britain-typified by a lengthy detention punctuated by interrogation and a summary legal hearing-as the UN and the E.U. seek to address human rights issues. The newsmaking stories of a Bangladeshi detainee's suicide, a Kosovar Albanian detainee's deportation to certain death, and the struggle of Cameroonian political activist George Ekontang are spotlighted. The exploitation of xenophobia as a political tool is also considered. Some content may be objectionable.
