Dutch, English, French, German

The issue of migration is a hot topic in today’s Europe, but why? A mass global movement of humanity is taking place, as is evidenced by phenomena ranging from the tragic drownings in the Mediterranean to the so-called ‘brain drain’ within Europe itself. This theme examines some of the reasons behind such migrations and asks us to consider how we might better understand today’s voluntary and forced movements of people in light of European historical examples.
