As world leaders are set to adopt a new set of Global Sustainable Development Goals this week to Leave No One Behind and ensure Dignity for All, the rights and plight of migrants – who now constitute more than 3 percent of the global population – must be addressed.
International migration lies at the core of globalisation. Women, men and children leave their homes – sometimes voluntarily, sometimes not – to escape poverty, inequalities, discrimination and the effects of climate change. While seeking a better life, what they find is often starkly different.
Join ONE (SINGAPORE) and SMU Wee Kim Wee Centre on Monday 28 September to learn more about migration and the economic, social and cultural challenges associated with it.
