Op-ed: The Bamberg model and transit camp system in Germany


“We are refugees, not prisoners“, declared the group of asylum seekers living in the AEO Bamberg (Aufnahmeeinrichtung Oberfranken), the largest Bavarian deportation camp, in their press statement of 15 January 2018. Two days later they marched, accompanied by activist groups and people from other camps, from the AEO to the city hall to deliver a list of demands to the lord mayor of Bamberg. This petition and the situation it exposes deserves the wider attention of people in Germany, Europe and even beyond. Bamberg functions as a model of migration management in current German debates.
