A Journey Across Borders

10 EpisodesProduced by Virginia Stuart-TaylorWebsite

This is the tale of my 6-month journey across 26 borders in Europe in early 2017, to discover how borders evolve, what they mean and how they impact people’s lives.Written in summer 2017, while living outside the UK.


Trip no.8: Illicit Trade in the Netherlands 🇵🇱 🇳🇱 🇬🇧

In trip no.8 I organise a summer school in the Netherlands on the topic of illicit trade, visiting Rotterdam Port and learning from Interpol staff. I discuss how a transnational response is needed to track down and tackle the illicit traders, and I also look at the cost in time and money to the UK of new trade tariffs and customs checks if there is a hard border with the EU.

Written in summer 2017, while living outside the UK. You can find the full text of this episode, along with maps photos and videos, at
