Borders are understood as geographic delimitation, but also as containers of social realities that pretend to establish a clear differentiation one from each other. This happens especially in this case in which Europe must stand as an emblem of Human Rights, meanwhile doesn’t want to permit thoroughfare to the massive population crowding its borders. But, what do we face? We face a strong inner contradiction, as a sign of a confused and tumultuous time, which becomes the object of our analysis.
