Europe Slams its Gates

Europe’s migration crisis isn’t over — it’s just beginning. With net immigration expected to exceed 1 million per year for the next five decades and xenophobia surging, European leaders are grasping for new ways to slow the influx. So far, their efforts have included tighter rules and enforcement at home, as well as multibillion-dollar development projects and support for local militaries and governments in Africa.

This investigation was first published in Foreign Policy and received the 2018 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the New Media category.

Biography

Esther Ruth Mbabazi is a Ugandan photographer whose work focuses on the social, physical, and emotional aspects of daily life, especially in rural areas and amongst minority groups.

In 2017, she was a Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice fellow. The year before, Esther was selected for the 2016 World Press Photo Masterclass East Africa and won the inaugural Young Photographer Award presented by the Uganda Press Photo Award. She has completed assignments for international publications such as TIME Magazine, The Observer and El Pais, and she frequently collaborates with organizations such as Comic Relief, Farm Africa and Let There Be Light International, among others.

Recognized for her nuanced approach to social issues, Esther’s work draws on her own experiences to reflect more varied and underrepresented stories from the African continent and beyond.

Esther is mentored by Nichole Sobecki.
