The Spanish enclave Ciudad Autonoma de Ceuta stands midway
between a city and an autonomous community with a Parliament and
president of its own. Formerly an administrative part of the Spanish
province of Cadiz, Ceuta, situated along the coast of Morocco, is now
fully part of the European Union. This vanguard of European neoliberal
and xenophobic refugee policy acts as a contemporary version
of the ‘Iron Curtain’.
