Article on Foucault and the current refugee crisis

This is an article by academic Stephane J Bale in which she discusses Foucault’s ideas about biopolitics and how his ideas about an excessive pre-occuptation with the health of the population might explain current European responses to the refugee crisis. One small quibble; the author mentions that Germany is an exception to a trend of putting up barriers against refugees. It is a huge exception and it would be interesting to discuss this.
