Carlos Batara's curator insight, November 20, 1:26 PM

 

For a country that once boasted the '100,000 welcomes' to visitors, Ireland has become the least welcoming country in western Europe for refugees.

 

Last year Ireland nearly double the 2012 figure for deportations.

  

According to immigrant support groups, Ireland is not meeting its commitment to take in 4,000 Syrian refugees as part of the European Union agreed-upon relocation program.  

 

It sounds like the philosophy of Immigration Trumpism is alive and well overseas.

Inside the Sacrifice Zone

Inside the Sacrifice Zone | Migration | Scoop.it
As the country’s major political parties have become foreign countries to each other—with their own languages, press, moral philosophies, realities—a new kind of political literature has emerged. How, the authors ask, can so many people live in an upside-down reality, denouncing everything the writers consider virtuous, embracing everything they consider immoral? Arlie Russell Hochschild’s Strangers in Their Own Land is the most satisfying example yet of this fish-out-of-water approach.

Jan de Vetten brengt zijn promotieonderzoek ook uit in boekvorm. ‘In de ban van goed en fout’ beschrijft voor het eerst - op basis van archiefonderzoek en interviews - op samenhangende wijze de bestrijding van de CP en CD, en ook de reactie daarop van die partijen. Waarom werden ze zo fel werden bestreden? Werd de tegenstelling tussen die partijen en de rest van de samenleving vooral in morele termen gegoten?
