Migrants dying in the forests on the EU’s eastern borders

“The humanitarian crisis on the Poland-Belarus border has claimed several lives. On 30 September 2021, the Polish parliament extended the state of emergency in a three-kilometre-deep strip of land along the border”, writes Marta Bivand Erdal (Research Director, PRIO and Co-Director PRIO Migration Centre).

In this Peace Research Institute (PRIO) blog, “Migrants Are Dying in the Forests on the EU’s Eastern Borders“,  Erdal looks at the humanitarian crisis unfolding on the EU’s eastern border, including how people are being used as pawns in a geopolitical power struggle.
