Thessaloniki, Greece and Milano, Italy: unsung gateways of migration

Short thesis

Thessaloniki, Greece and Milano, Italy: unsung gateways of migration to the EU have long been dealing with both political unpreparedness and solidarity on the ground. We get them to tell each other their own story, and you get to tell yours.

Description

Italian data journalism hub Open Migration and Thessaloniki-based organisation Solidarity Now sit talking to share and mirror their experience of immersion into the migration crisis. How do institutions react to the arrival of people fleeing war and poverty? What are the tools and lessons of solidarity? Do cities and towns deal with the migration crisis any differently than the European and the national institutions? What do you discover when your homeplace becomes a gateway - sometimes a gateway that people cannot go through? How many cities as gateways are represented in the audience and what our their stories to tell?
