UNESCO (2018). Global Education Report 2019 : Migration, displacement and education - Building Bridges Not Walls. Paris, France : UNESCO.




Powerful, moving stories of migration and displacement occur around the world. People wave goodbye to families in train stations, setting off for factory or mine jobs in faraway cities and countries with a promise to return. Caravans of people flee persecution, leaving burned homes behind. People sell their precious few possessions for a boat ticket to a new place, determined to succeed. People watch their children grow up speaking a different language; wait anxiously for news of loved ones attempting risky passage over mountains and seas; save to send children to study in the city or overseas; gratefully receive a wire transfer from a cousin or a friend; are detained with no information on what will happen to them next; sleep roughly for months, moving from one odd job to another; find a warm, welcoming place, or suffer discrimination and humiliation, in foreign communities. Some migrating people never had it so good and never look back; others find themselves unable to adapt to a different culture and feel nostalgic the rest of their lives. These stories of ambition, hope, fear, anticipation, ingenuity, fulfilment, sacrifice, courage, perseverance and distress remind us that ‘[m]igration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family’ (United Nations, 2013). Yet migration and displacement are ‘also a source of divisions within and between States and societies … In recent years, large movements of desperate people, including both migrants and refugees, have cast a shadow over the broader benefits of migration’ (United Nations, 2017, p. 2).
