Summary

Explains the difference between refugees and migrants, and looks at the numerous reasons why people leave their country of origin, with personal testaments from famous people.

Every day in the news we see and hear people described as refugees, asylum seekers and migrants leaving their homes and taking difficult, sometimes life-threatening journeys to new countries. What has made them leave, and what should the countries that receive them do about the situation? What links us all as human beings, and what happens when people are denied their human rights?

This book will help you understand migration, the movement of people, in all its forms. The aim is to get you to think for yourselves about the big questions raised by the subject, and then use the answers to make a list of human rights that you think all people should share.

There is a range of views from people who have personal experience of migration, including the campaigners Meltem Avcil and Muzoon Almellehan, the comedian and actor Omid Djalili and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah.
