> 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.

> Campaign for access of civil society and journalists for detention centres in Europe and Beyond:OPEN ACCESS NOW!
> European Alternatives and Migreurop, together with more than 20 organisations all over Europe launch the Campaign 'Open Access Now'. In Europe today, roughly 600,000 people including children are detained every year, most often without a court decision.Today, in most EU countries, journalists and civil society have very limited access to migrant detention centres. Often, even when one accesses it is impossible to meet people in detention, or even to talk to them. Generally, only Members of national and European Parliaments have right of access. This lack of transparency increases the risk of malpractice and numerous rights violations. Places where foreigners are detained must not remain a reality that is hidden from us. Why should we not have access? We want to know what is happening there.

> Mr Doros Polycarpou, Executive Director of KISA, is being prosecuted on charges of rioting, following tragic events at the Rainbow Festival on 5 November 2010, in Larnaca, Cyprus.We believe this trial is yet another hostile attempt to prevent KISA from upholding the fundamental rights of migrants. Moreover, this trial demonstrates the failure of the Cypriot authorities to fully respect international human rights principles [1], EU law [2]and casts doubts on Cyprus’s suitability to take over the EU presidency in July 2012.

> 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.
