Migration 101 Episodes 1-3
About a month ago, I signed up for a free online "course" on migration (Migration Matters: Learn About Migration in Five Minutes a Day). Then I forgot about it. It started this week. Every day, I get two emails: one with a short video lecture by Hein de Haas, a Dutch migration scholar. There are also resources and readings available. If you do it all, it's definitely not five minutes a day! But even just watching the videos is turning out to be very educational. It takes myths about migration and turns them on their heads and reports on research showing neglected truths about migration in the world.
Episode 1: Are we living in a time of unprecedented migration? (Hint: No.)
Episode 2: How has migration to Europe changed over time?
Episode 3: How much does global inequality drive migration? (Not as much as you think!)
