NOTE: this post was scheduled for March 23 but I forgot to hit the publish button. Feel free to comment on this or Topic 10 this week.
This topic deals with migration. I saw migration because immigration and emmigration are simply two sides of the same movement. Every immigrant to a nation is also an emmigrant from their home country.
The readings for this topic are:

Here’s the presentation I made recently at the LCC Centre for Engaged Inclusion about “Mythbusting Immigration”. Most of the slides are graphs or data. Links to the original articles and sources of those graphs/data are included in each one.
