Quarterly Theme : Migration & Trafficking

Populations have been roaming the planet since the beginning of times, and migrations have shaped our current world in many ways. Yet, to leave one’s native roots and culture for the prospect of new opportunities can be a challenging, and sometimes dangerous, endeavour. Transiting through countries with different climates, rules, customs, with little to no knowledge of  anyone apart from oneself and perhaps a few fellow travellers, can lead to vulnerability. With no local ties and little knowledge of their rights and the resources they can resort to, migrants looking for a better life can make easy targets for traffickers.
