Neutron-rich nuclei reveal particular phenomena such as shell evolution, halos and neutron skins. Large efforts are being made worldwide to access the most neutron-rich nuclei to study how their structure differs from stable ones, leading to stringent constraints for nuclear interactions and structure models. In this colloquium, recent results from a three-year gamma spectroscopy campaign at the Radioactive Isotopic Beam Factory (RIBF), Japan, today’s most powerful accelerator to produce neutron-rich nuclei, will be presented. Related developments towards HISPEC at FAIR will be discussed. A new project  aiming at the first use of low-energy antiprotons to probe the density tail of radioactive nuclei at CERN will be introduced. This project has potentials for future experiments with low energy antiprotons at FAIR, as initially developed in FLAIR.
