> Migreurop report: At the margins of Europe: externalisation of migration controls
> This 2010-2011 report focusses once again on two pillars of European migration policy that Migreurop has often described: the subcontracting of controls and the detention of migrants and asylum seekers, this time surveyed in their maritime and eastern dimensions. While a wall is being built in western Turkey to prevent border crossings into Greece, Turkey actively cooperates with EU policy by locking its eastern border with Iran and by organising, as readers will see, a real hunt for refugees.Externalisation also involves the privatisation of controls. Adopted as soon as 2001, a European directive envisages sanctions for carriers transporting passengers who do not have the documents required to enter an EU member state. This transfer of a state function to private agents is not something new. Since the early 1990s, it has been the rule in merchant navy ships for the treatment of ‘stowaways’ who board merchant ships in the hope of reaching Europe. In this sector, policing tasks have effectively been primarily transferred towards shipowners and insurers. The report describes and analyses these processes on the basis of testimonies collected in German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, French and Bulgarian ports.

> Building Biometrics: Knowledge Construction in the Democratic Control of Surveillance Technology
> If surveillance technologies are to be democratically controlled, then knowledge of these technologies is required. What do they do? How do they work? What are the costs? Yet gaining this knowledge in the context of a new surveillance technology such as biometrics can be problematic, because no settled definition exists. Competing versions of biometrics appear in both public and governmental discourse on the technology: different ideas about how often it fails, where it can be used and even what it does. This paper is an exploration of how these different versions compete with each other, and how knowledge about a new surveillance technology such as biometrics is thus constructed.

> (Film) Vol Special/Special Flight
> Awaiting definite deportment from the Swiss territory, rejected asylum seekers and illegal migrants are jailed at the administrative detention centre Frambois. Behind the closed prison doors, tension builds day by day. On one side there are wardens full of humanist values, on the other there are men defeated by fear and stress. Relations of friendship and hate, respect and revolt are formed until the announcement of the deportment, which is experienced like a stab. Those who refuse to leave are handcuffed, tied up and forcibly put in a plane. In this extreme situation, despair has a name: special flight.

> The EDRi papers, EDITION 02
> The purpose of this booklet is to briefly outline current EU surveillance and security measures in order to give an insight into their scale and cumulative effect. In order to be legal under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, each security measure that limits fundamental rights is understood to be effective and a “necessary” and “proportionate” breach of the rights which our society considers to be fundamental.

> the meaning of treaties and readmission agreements between Italy and north African states
> The Italian government and the EU are attempting to urgently re-establish readmission agreements with new regimes in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya with scant regard for the wellbeing of refugees and asylum seekers. A �state of emergency� has been declared in Italy which has allowed the government to derogate from certain laws and fast-track the application process.

This has contributed to a record number of people dying at Europe�s borders during the first seven months of 2011.

> (Sp/Fr)The ongoing disgrace of detention centres
> Two reports on detention centres have been published in Spain and France that highlight a situation in which foreigners are experiencing conditions that are often worse than those in prisons as a result of administrative offences (irregular residence) and an aim to maximise the rates of detention and returns. This has led to large-scale violations of human rights and to policies that reduce judicial oversight and the possibility of detained foreigners to effectively exercise their rights through judicial proceedings and access to effective remedies.
