Chronicles of Calais Jungle, an introduction to the European refugee crisis and the role of citizen solidarity

Yasmin BouaggaWhat is the refugee crisis in Europe? Yasmine Bouagga, socio-anthropologist, entered Calais Jungle with the cartoonist Lisa Mandel, and investigated how an informal refugee camp developed on the European territory, at the border between France and UK: discovering who are these refugees, who are the volunteers helping them and why the French government did not develop facilities to avoid the humanitarian crisis. The chronicles untangle the multiple aspects of what became a landmark event in the history of Europe.
