Making Sense of Immigration and Migration Around the World

No comments :
With U.S. President Trump's recent comments that labeled certain nations as "sh**hole countries" and the recent news regarding a U.S. crackdown on immigration, the Libraries’ want to share a database called Border and Migration Studies Online that helps researchers delve into the complexity of human migration. You can learn the historical background on more than thirty worldwide border areas, including:
  • Canada

    2016. Viergemene was deported from the Dominican Republic despite having
    registered under the regularization plan. Her husband and eight children, all
    born in the Dominican Republic, followed her in Haiti a few days later.

  • The United States
  • Mexico
  • The European Union
  • Haiti
  • Korea
  • Syria
  • African nations such as Angola, Botswana, Liberia, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, and Tanzania.

Studying borders and migration gives insight into histories of countries and cultural groups, economies, human rights, gender, activism, racism, human trafficking, identities, nationhood, undocumented and unauthorized migration and border enforcement and control.

The collection includes text, videos, and maps that
can help you in your teaching, research, and learning about border and migration issues. You can learn why people migrate, issues they encounter, and how the governments of various countries deal with related matters.
