The resources in this collection speak to a number of questions from the understanding migration section of the Re-imagining Migration Learning Arc. Among them are:
Where do we humans come from?
→ Where do humans come from and what is our shared story?
→ How do we know about our ancestors who migrated around the planet over the last 70,000 years?
→ How is our shared human history shaping our lives today?
What was life like before the journey (ours or others’)?
→ How did people live their lives before migration (cultural practices), (theirs or others)?
→ What values, worldviews did people hold?
→ How does life before migration connect with life today? What is similar, what is different?
Why do people leave their homes?
→ In what ways do societal, political and environmental forces/challenges influence the decision to migrate?
→ In what ways do the more intimate personal contexts motivate people ‘s decisions to leave their homes?
→ What happens to those who stay and how do they relate to those who leave?
