A transnational collaboration between the IRR, the Permanent People’s Tribunal London steering group & French group Gisti. Deadly Crossings is the first English-language analysis of Channel-related deaths. Published within weeks of the UK exit from the European Union, the report argues that far from the UK getting a handle on border control post-Brexit, further securitisation of its borders will only result in more human suffering.
Translated from a publication originally written in French by Maël Galisson of Gisti, a legal service for asylum seekers in France, the report features a timeline which shows the deaths chronologically; and an interactive map, showing them geographically.
Deadly Crossings and the Militarisation of Britain’s Borders reveals the human tragedies caused by inhumane border enforcement at a time when the UK Home Office is seeking to make Channel crossings ‘unviable’.
