As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century the lives of millions of people are shaped by the experience of migration. Immigration is the human face of globalization – the sounds, colors, and smells of a miniaturized, interconnected, and fragile world. This lecture examines the challenges of making migration work with a focus on immigration's inter-generational echo and the transition of immigrant origin youth via education to the labor market, to belonging, to citizenship and to the narrative of the nation.
