As debates on immigration have reached fever pitch, so has political and media fearmongering. But what are the facts behind the headlines?
Drawing on three decades of research, migration expert Hein de Haas destroys the myths that politicians, interest groups, and media spread about immigration. He reveals:
Global migration is not at an all-time high Climate change will not lead to mass migration Immigration mainly benefits the wealthy, not workers Border restrictions have paradoxically produced more migration
Ultimately, de Haas shows migration not as a problem to be solved, nor as a solution to a problem, but as it really is.
This book is an essential guide to one of our most divisive political issues, showing how we can move beyond today’s deeply polarized debate and make migration work better for everyone.
