One of the key elements of these events has been their online circulation which has flowed from…

CLT | Critical Legal Thinking by Ricardo Sanín Restrepo - 1M ago

The poet should endeavor, if possible, to combine all poetic elements; or failing that, the greatest number and those the most important; the more so, in face of the caviling criticism of the day. — Aristotle, Poetics Like all great aesthetic works, Roma by Alonso Cuarón can be seen and felt in innumerable ways.

A hotspot, to explain, is the idea of detaining arriving migrants and refugees at one spot for processing, the hotspot RIC (Reception and Identification Centre). It is another instrument to add to a growing collection for a common European asylum policy. But that is a myth, for the common policy is only called upon when…
