Global, local and internal mobility are creating several types of migration. Asian peoples seek new space and contexts, while refugees from troubled parts of the world flee danger. Some governments try to stem the flow of refugees, but welcome economic migrants. However, even economic migration is controversial when locals feel the pressure on scarce communal resources, and blame migrants for rising house prices. With internal migration, cities grow and rural areas decline.

This lecture will get behind the rhetoric to help you understand the real issues of migration and the Government response.
