Theme Winter School

For the sixth year in a row, the number of refugees in the world has increased by record numbers. Currently, one out of every 100 people has been forced to leave everything behind— either fleeing their homeland for an international destination or displaced within their own country. More than half are children and adolescents. Just like migration, as flows nowadays often tend to be mixed and overlap each other, forced migration affects our entire planet. And the closure of borders and the privatization of immigration detention centers means that more and more people, particularly women and children, who are forced to migrate end up imprisoned.
