Borderland

A Documentary by CONOR MAGUIRE and PAUL WEBSTER

 

28th July 2016 marked the 65th anniversary of the signing of the UN Refugee Convention. It is an incredibly admirable achievement, an agreement "signed by 144 State parties, it defines the term ‘refugee’ and outlines the rights of the displaced, as well as the legal obligations of States to protect them." Unfortunately The EU and its member states have largely ignored the rules and protocol of this agreement.
