The show is based on migration politics, and Europa Europa issued the following statement behind "För Alla Namn Vi Inte Får Använda":
Praise all those hundreds of thousands of people who defy the cameras, the deadly waters, the barbed wire, the violence and the compact political resistance, and make it across the external and internal borders of Europe every year.
