Al Jazeera – Why The World Fears Refugees
(Narrated by Zygmunt Bauman)
Film animated by Balkong Studios
Zygmunt Bauman, one of the most influential thinkers of our time, says many Europeans' fear of refugees, boils down to the idea of the “precariat” - people whose lives are marked by precariousness, anxiety and fear. As more EU countries raise walls and the backlash against foreigners grows, Al Jazeera spoke to the Polish sociologist about why people fear refugees.
