BF publie une nouvelle enquête sur les effets mortels des contrôles frontaliers au Niger. Nous avons enquêté sur la relation entre les pratiques frontalières, l’évolution des routes migratoires et les dangers de la traversée du désert.
Un fil 🧵
En 2015, avec le soutien des États et des agences européennes, le #Niger a adopté une loi sur le trafic illicite de migrants. La loi 2015-36 établit de nouvelles formes de #contrôle des frontières pour contenir les migrations vers la Libye. Image
La loi 2015-36 n'a pas mis fin à la #mobilité des migrants dans la région, au contraire elle a poussé leurs trajectoires vers des zones encore plus reculées du #désert, créant ainsi des situations encore plus dangereuses et souvent fatales. Image

Today, BF launches a new investigation on the deadly effects of border control in Niger. Over the past year we investigated the relation between bordering practices, spatial shifts in migrant trajectories and increased danger of crossing Niger’s Saharan desert.

So if it comes to a invasion of #Iran there are several things to see and know. The #Geography is on the side of Iran. The #West is protected by a massiv #Chain of #mountains wich would be easy to #defend even with a weaker #army they could try to keep there a defend line
The north is not able to reach for the #US troops and the #caspiansee is #landlocked by many #nations. A inportant @NATO allie if the defens act works would be #Turkey wich would be forced to send troops against #Iran and a area mainly owned by #Kurds in #Iran.
