Patricia Pisani’s allusion to global escape mechanisms is talking about the worldwide more than 80 million refugees the UN system currently aims to assist, with no end of the crisis in sight: a ‘MUST-SEE’ worth visiting while in Berlin, on until November 14, 2021, see link: https://www.zitadelle-berlin.de/weltbewegend/.
