This month we are reblogging a conference paper recorded and available to watch at the Cost of Living blog, in which Arshad Isakjee (University of Birmingham) and Arshad Isakjee (University of Liverpool) describe their study of living conditions in the largest informal refugee camp in Europe, in Calais, France. The paper explores the theme of biopolitical exclusion and the embodied, material consequences of the European response to the refugee crisis. Their presentation, recorded at the British Sociological Association's Medical Sociology in September, 2017, can be watched here.
