This is the third post of Border Criminologies themed week on 'Borders Through Time: Commemorating Lampedusa' organised by Victoria Canning and Francesca Esposito.  

Working with people seeking safety in Lesvos is becoming more and more difficult. As well as issues in infrastructure and the restrictions placed on crossing in the EU-Turkey deal, migrant solidarity activists are increasingly targeted by right wing groups, as well as by authorities that seek to criminalise some aspects of migrant support. In this interview, Victoria Canning speaks to Evgenia Iliadou about her work with migrant solidarity groups in Lesvos, the importance of dignity in death, as well as Evgenia’s research into border harms across this region.
