Non-citizens: A series of portraitsPosted: August 17, 2012
Re-public, in co-operation with the European research project GeMIC, opens a new series of portraits titled ‘Non-citizens’. Publishing the accounts of men and women non-citizens, we will try to initiate a dialogue on how they are living, shaping, and negotiating their individual and collective identities while inhabiting Greek national space. What is the relationship of non-Greek citizens with the basic practices that are establishing modern liberal democracy: rights, participation, freedom, labour, violence? How are these intertwined with gendered relations of power? The series of portraits begins with a conversation with Konstantina Kuneva on violence on the occasion of the international day on the elimination of violence against women.
