Ian Goldin, author of Exceptional People: How Migration Shaped Our World and Will Define Our Future, will be speaking at Blackwell Bookshop on Thursday 13th October at 7pm.
Exceptional People: How Migration Defined our World and Will Define Our Future offers a history of migration, from man’s earliest wanderings in Africa to the present day. Goldin points out that it is odd that there is no global body to oversee the movement of people, as there is with finance and trade. More surprisingly, he also argues that a ‘tipping point’ will be reached soon, which could shift the political debate. Future policies, for good or ill, will dramatically determine whether societies can effectively reap migration’s opportunities while managing the risks of the twenty-first century.
