Tortura e migrazioni

Fabio Perocco    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia     ORCID iD



As a social relationship of submission whose scope goes beyond those directly affected, torture is still an ongoing practice, widespread everywhere, and this is also due to several processes typical of the neo-liberal era – starting from the policies aimed at the security armoring of society. The essay, which examines the causes and dimensions of torture, inhuman and degrading treatment of migrants, shows how this global phenomenon today has a close link with the worsening conditions of migration, the global war on immigrants, the tightening of migration policies, the stigmatization of immigrants, the rise of institutional racism, the illegalization of migrations, all elements that favor the production of contexts, environments and situations permeable to torture.
