With my colleague Dragan Umek from the University of Trieste I have visited the makeshift camp of Idomeni, in Greece. Dragan and I have travelled from the north Adriatic city of Trieste in Italy to Idomeni by following, in the opposite direction, the so called Balkan Route taken by about one million refugees in 2015 alone. We have therefore crossed 5 national borders and visited several camps in order to start preparing a research project that intends to study the new Camp Geographies of this part of Europe and the constrained mobilities of thousands of people that make this highly controversial route.
