On the List
Besides visiting official and unofficial candidates for the US State Department’s No-Go Advisory page, Marco and Bilal invite representatives from the State Department to discuss the genesis of the list, criterion for listing, reactions to the list and justifications for its continuation. Educated by their recent travels, Marco and Bilal look forward to sharing their findings about the practical uses of the list, unexpected consequences of the list, and their assessment of the perceptions and apprehensions that listing produces for NO-GO nations and global travel.
