This post is part of a series about European Migration. You can read the complete series HERE.
Regardless of the timeframe for the migration, the basic reasons haven’t really changed very much.
- Fleeing Persecution
- Escaping wars, of varying scale
- Creating a better life
- Enforced Migration
- Migration Schemes
- Work opportunities
- Prisoners of War & Internment
- Following Military Service
Over the next few posts, I am going to take each of the points above and give some examples, some of which might overlap other points listed above. Furthermore, some of the examples might develop into a more specific posts as the Migration Series progresses.
Think of migration as an umbrella 🌂 , and once opened ☂ each spoke becoming one of the points above, some of which will develop into mini umbrellas. Migration is so much more than passenger lists.
