Based on the 2018 World Migration Report, you will see 405 million worldwide migrants by 2050. Among global warming, geopolitical instabilities, and authoritarian nationalism, borders have grown to be crucial sites of both proliferating cruelty and outpourings of unity. We’re all asking: How did we obtain here? And just what are we able to do? This series includes scholars and activists from multiple fields who are able to allow us to confront these questions with humanistic sensibility and depth of understanding.
