Dr Florian Lippert, Associate Professor for European Culture and Literature at the UG and currently Research Fellow at NIAS Amsterdam, interviewed Julian Pahlke, MdB (member of the German Parliament), about the current situation of refugees from Ukraine, his recent experience at the border between Ukraine and Poland, future perspectives of EU migration policy and the situation in Germany.
Pahlke, an expert for EU policies and migration, has worked as a civilian sea rescuer in the Mediterranean before running for the Bundestag. In the light of the rising numbers of refugees, he calls for urgent action; in the light of the solidarity already shown in many parts of the EU, his prognosis is not without hope: "We are currently seeing what is possible if the member states want it".
The interview took place for the Sound of Peace Festival on March 20th. Watch the interview (in German) below.
