Season 2 Trailer


Why do migrants take increasingly dangerous routes? How is technology changing the places where people work and the countries trying to attract them? And why is xenophobia against migrants being mobilized by South Africa’s politicians?

I'll be seeking answers from the world's leading academics and those working on the frontlines of migration.

Welcome to season two of Borders & Belonging! If you're new to the show – welcome! In Season 1, we focused on debunking some of the biggest migration myths. You can always go back and listen to these episodes in any order you like.  In Season 2, we’re taking a different approach, highlighting regional migration issues to uncover how wider global forces play out locally around the world. We’ll be exploring topics like what’s driving migrants to brave dangerous routes like the Darien Gap.
