Concrete Geographies: The Border Fences of Ceuta and Melilla

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This inaugural “Motherland” issue of the new Parangolé journal presents research, reporting, photojournalism, and design interventions that identify and explore some of the many forms transitory and permanent conditions of migration and displacement take. The contributions, developed over recent years, serves as points of departure to investigate the complex and interlinked issues linked to migration and displacement.

In the face of crisis people have relocated, either voluntarily or by force, throughout time. Either to seek refuge or to find a better life away from home. Economic, political, and security considerations represent often overlapping motivations for leaving home. People are moving in anticipation or because of violence, environmental disasters, economic collapse, frequently due to protracted conflict and instability. The scale and nature of migration and displacement today is growing, taking on an increasingly urban dimension.
