Mass migration has long been a feature of global society. It has intensified since the 20th century’s world wars, empire collapse and decolonisation. The largest migration in human history has been an internal one, in China, towards the industrial cities, while the United States, with over a million a year in the 1990s, has more immigrants than any other country in the world. Climate change and violent conflict will accelerate and diversify the movement of populations no longer contained by the asylum rules.
In this WritersMosaic event, writers Oscar Guardiola-Rivera, Amaal Said, and Olumide Popoola discuss mass migration in our time. The discussion is chaired by WritersMosaic Founding Editor Gabriel Gbadamosi.
