Restricted access

Ribas-Mateos covers a theoretical challenge set on a complex framework considering the proliferation of spaces concerning the situation of migrants trapped in Libya and on the proliferation on borders and actors when dealing with this topic. The research entails an action research (development of human rights) with a gender perspective. This perspective gives the reader a way into a complex understanding aboutexiting extreme violence. Apart from extreme violence many other concepts end up by making us reflect on the understanding of suffering, distant suffering (view from the distance and the outsider view) when considering the answers to humanitarian crisis, as well as the question of humanitarian accountability and the NGOs advocacy in cases of extreme violence.
