An original idea by Alababalà
Humanity has always been nomadic. Sedentary life, boundaries set up and creation of identity documents for increasingly stricter population control are a recent phenomenon. Given that the world has never been so globalized, that’s paradoxical. The recent emergence of populist movements in the West, focused on closing borders and rejecting others, raises serious questions about our fraternity, especially at the dawn of the coming great climate migrations which could directly affect us.
This book synthetically explains what migration is, its causes and consequences, and the humanistic and legal aspects regarding it.
