17.45 Migration Trends: Winners and Losers
(following the 16.00 screening Special Flight, 2011)
In an attempt to prevent "irregular migration" from Africa to Europe, some European countries implement border control measures outside their own territory, at sea and on land. States have reached agreements to intercept boats at sea and return people to countries in West and North Africa, in circumstances that expose people to serious human rights violations.
What challenges do migrants and asylum seekers face in Europe and particularly in Hungary?

17.45 Arab Spring: Hopes and Realities
(following 16.00 screening Tahrir 2011: The Good, the Bad and the Politician, 2011)
Millions went to the streets in the hope to topple the despotic regime of Egypt. The protests were largely peaceful protests, but the response was lethal and excessive. Mubarak left, but human rights violations stayed. Effective change cannot occur without human rights respected. The new leadership needs to tackle the bloody legacy of police and army and guarantee that no one is above the law. Is the will of the Good enough to make hopes of millions become reality?
