Migration

June 18, 2019

mi·gra·tion
noun
1: movement of people to a new area or country in order to find work or better living conditions.

Migration is a complex phenomenon driven by a wide range of economic, social, and political circumstances. It has far-reaching implications for the long-term growth and political dynamics of both the countries from which migrants leave and the countries in which they arrive.

Today, the world is seeing those implications play out around migration streams through Northern Africa and the Americas. On this podlette, our host Travis Green explores these themes with:

  • Christopher Livesay - Award-winning foreign correspondent and producer based in Rome. His work on migration has been featured on the PBS NewsHour.
  • Jorge Ceballos - Program Manager in IRI's Guatemala office.
