Sentenced to normality: the Italian political refugees in Paris

Ruggiero, Vincenzo ORCID logoORCID: (1993) Sentenced to normality: the Italian political refugees in Paris. Crime, Law and Social Change, 19 (1) . pp. 33-50. ISSN 0925-4994 [Article]


The author describes the widely unknown reality of Italian asylum seekers in France. Ex-political activists of the left, they were forced to cross the internal borders of so-called Fortress Europe. The juridical anomaly of their status is highlighted, and their living conditions and political reflections reported. A phenomenon that most would think confined to the unfortunate victims of some Latin American dictatorship, or to the highly glamourized dissidents of ex-Communist countries, is instead occurring within democratic united Europe.
