The journal movements collects academic, activist and artistic output that deals with migration and border regimes. It fosters exchange between academic discourse and the movements of migration, and thus allows for political debate about our societies in motion. This issue takes as its theme the current developments of the Turkish migration and border regime in the wake of the EUropean migration policies in recent years. The contributors focus, on the one hand, on the so called EU-Turkey Deal and its implications on politics and society in Turkey and its neighborhood and, on the other hand, on the politics of migration and the living conditions of asylum seekers and migrants in Turkey. movements is published in print with transcript and online (open access) at www.movements-journal.org.
