Sally Hayden’s new book “My Fourth Time, We Drowned” explores the human side of state efforts to control and contain mobility. Beyond a condemnation of NGOs and the United Nations, the book is an intimate portrait of the life of people on the move who become captives during their journeys. The book highlights the resilience of humans: how refugees and migrants locked up for years fall in love, support each other through the hardest times, and carry out small acts of resistance in order to survive in a system that wants them to be silent and disappear.

Sally Hayden will present her work to a live and virtual audience in this hybrid online and in-person event. This will lead to a discussion of the book’s implications across multiple regions and themes.

Our panellists include:

Amera Markous, Humanitarian researcher

Dr Marthe Achtnich, Senior Demy at Magdalen College, University of Oxford
