There are many reasons to migrate: persecution and war, poverty and hunger, yet also the pursuit of a better life. Migration means - briefly described - the medium or long term spatial change of the centre of one's life.
This publication offers insights into exemplary processes, that drive people from their homes. It provides a forum for scientists from Pakistan, Somalia and El Salvador, people, who had to flee from Syria, Burundi and Malawi as well as migrants and activists from Niger and Senegal. They all emphasise how little we know about the "causes of migration and flight" and show the necessity of political action.
