Against the Double Blackmail

Refugees, Terror and Other Troubles with the Neighbours

Slavoj Žižek

'One of our best-known living philosophers' Guardian

How do we respond to the refugee crisis - by opening our doors, or pulling up the drawbridge? Both solutions, argues Slavoj Žižek, offer ideological blackmail, and both are wrong. He proposes that instead we see the crisis as an opportunity: a unique chance for Europe to redefine itself and its future.

'Žižek identifies the refugee crisis as one of the major global challenges of our time ... he argues for a politics of solidarity' The Times Literary Supplement
