The Blurb On The Back:
Every minute 24 people are forced to leave their homes; currently, more than 65 million are displaced worldwide. Small wonder that tackling the refugee and migration crisis has become a global political priority.
Can this crisis be resolved and, if so, how? In this compelling essay, Jacqueline Bhabha explains why forced migration demands compassion, generosity, and a vigorous acknowledgement of our shared dependence on human mobility as a key element of global collaboration. Unless we develop humane “win-win” strategies for tackling the inequalities and conflicts driving migration and for addressing the fears fuelling xenophobia, innocent lives and cardinal human rights principles will be squandered in the service of futile nationalism and oppressive border control.
