Profile and Career
- Migration and mobility pervade and transform today’s societies and have done so throughout history. Virtually every aspect of society is influenced and shaped by migration, including labour markets, education systems, culture, politics, religion and civil society.
- These developments present both opportunities and challenges. Opportunities may involve filling labour market shortages, as well as development and cultural enrichment; while challenges concern catering for the needs of refugees, the brain drain in developing countries, and preventing tensions and conflicts between cultural groups in host societies.
