Conservative, populist and right-wing governments in Hungary, Germany, Italy and Austria build new alliances to control and close borders and stop immigration. This inter-European cooperation draw up new "master plans of migration" that "are completely at odds with dynamics of migration (and) systematically fail in their aim of ending the arrivals of illegalised migrants", as pointed out by researcher and co-founder of Forensic Oceanography Charles Heller.

The conference Taking a Glance, Taking a Stance invites researchers to share insights and findings on asylum and border regimes in different regions of Italy. The aim is to better understand the current situation, allowing us to develop comprehensive perspectives aside of mainstream media discourses.

Porco Rosso is a cultural association in Palermo (IT) that supports asylum seekers and illegalised people. It is a nonhierarchical organization of activists and volunteers that encourage the decisional power of individuals and at the same time contribute to a shared vision of community, in actively fighting against the alienation many face on arriving in Italy.
