A LeidenGlobal Step Talk by
Prof. Ton Dietz
on ‘African Migrants on the Move’, followed by the opening of the LeidenGlobal Exhibition ‘Heritage on the Move’ at Wijnhaven Building The Hague.
In this Step Talk
will give insight to better understand African Migration to Europe. What are the consequences of rapid population growth for the future of the world and for Africa: urbanization, migration, resource competition, prospects for economic growth and political turmoil. What does the current situation (slowing down of economic growth, and the start of the Brexit-Trump era) mean for Africa? What does it mean for Europe when African migrants move here, and what does it mean for their own identity and cultural heritage?
The Step Talk will be followed by the opening of the LeidenGlobal Exhibition ‘Heritage on the Move’, a series of 12 photographs, provided by scholars of the LeidenGlobal partners, that show how all over the world people's heritage is changing through migration.
