Migrants provides an
easy-to-understand explanation for children of what migration is, its causes
and consequences.

Humanity was nomadic for 99% of its existence.
Sedentary life, national borders and the creation of identity documents for
increasingly stricter population control are comparatively recent phenomena,
and paradoxical given that the world is becoming ever more globalized. The
recent emergence of populist movements in the West that are focused on closing
borders and rejecting others raises serious questions about our sense of fraternity,
especially when we could be facing ever larger migration movements due to the
climate crisis.

This book concisely explains what migration is, its
causes and consequences, and the humanistic and legal aspects regarding it in
the simplest, most objective ways possible, so that children have all the
information they need to understand the world around them.

  • Introduces children aged 8
    and up to complex global social issues in a sensitive and balanced way
  • Characterful illustrations
    appropriate for the readership and subject matter
  • Easy-to-follow, bite-size
  • Includes a case study on
    the migration into Europe
