Synopsis

Why do politicians and citizens seem so threatened by refugees, asylum seekers and labour immigrants? Is it because such people-out-of-place challenge the system of nation-states? Mobile Worlds explores socially and culturally diverse forms of migrant experience, from among those know as gypsies, nomads, refugees, asylum seekers, illegal immigrants, illegal aliens, guest workers, labour migrants, circular migrants, astronauts, settlers, diasporas and transnational communities around the globe. The aim is to understand the implications of human movement for emerging trends that will characterise life in the 21st century.
