When Crisis Never Ends: Humanitarianism at the Spanish-Moroccan Border

In the past three decades, the tightening of borders in the Global
North has produced an increase of violence against migrants
along migratory routes. This has determined the appearance
of humanitarian missions in border areas. This lecture takes
the Moroccan Northern border as a case study to question the
relation between humanitarian work and border violence in the
governance of migrant life. I argue that the everyday violence
of the border shapes and challenges humanitarian purpose:
humanitarian missions become constantly necessary, constantly
redundant, allowed to stay at the condition of not exposing the
violence triggering the emergency in the first place.
