From the early 2000s onwards, the ‘Jungle’, the name given by media and then inhabitants to a series of unofficial refugee camps around Calais, the nearest French port to the UK, saw the arrivals and departures of hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants. In October 2016, a UK-funded wall was constructed around the Calais port, and French authorities began registering all the residents in the camp, before its demolition. In this insight Aura Lounasmaa discusses the operation of everyday political organisations and processes in the ‘Jungle’.
