Coming Soon! AAA's Public Education Initiative
The AAA Public Education Initiative will explore:
- The forms of movement that concern us now are not new; people have been moving around for as long as we have traces of humans on the planet. Today, every one of us has such a story in our own lives or in our family histories.
- Moving is connected to staying put. We need to ask: who is allowed or forced to move and who is not, and who is allowed or forced to stay?
- There are many interconnected reasons why migration can become important. This initiative will focus on: climate change, changes in economic activities, and competition for political power.
- Mobility (for whatever reasons) always brings changes in how we live, whether we are among those who move or those who stay: what we eat, how we dress, what we speak, where we live, what we believe. It triggers many feelings, from hope to fear, as much linked to individual lives as to public debates, to individual and family or community strategies or to institutional and state policies and regulations.
