Chapter 9 Refugees, Europe, death
Restricted access

This text focuses on Europe and the intersections of refugees, neoliberalism and racism.It proposes that the only way to de-link from Europe’s new provincialism is to turn towards possibilities of analysis and critical thought elsewhere. Furthermore, the only way to open up possibilities for white Eastern European thought is, rather than fully embracing the old Western matrix of knowledge that is an outcome of colonialism, to try to rethink our conditions of potentiality together with those whose thoughts have been marginalized for far too long. Colonialism and its contemporary manifestations have not only dispossessed millions and turned them into commodities but have also incarcerated their thoughts and discursivity. If Europe - that is, as a ‘fortress Europe’ akin to the old Western world - is a provincial territory today, then the thoughts and the intellectual repertoire that it can produce are also provincial.
