Images and Notes from a Fieldwork Visit to Malta

Slide 2
  • On arrival I joined Dr Maria Pisani, Co-Investigator on the project, and her team at their candlelit vigil on exiles beach at Sliema.
  • Part of an international series of events across 27 EU countries, the US, and Australia, the gathering brought together activists, academics, refugees, and Maltese citizens in solidarity with those caught up in the Mediterranean migration crisis.
  • Interviewed by The Times of Malta, I overheard Maria give a powerful and effective message –’Let us open our hearts and open our borders and reach out to them’ – and it made me wish I could overcome my own anxieties about engaging with the media on this issue.
