Description

We have lost the plot when it comes to migration. In our collective consciousness, the term migration conjures up images of hordes of refugees fleeing their country, escaping on rafts and coming to invade ours. When we think of migration, we think of (largely unwanted) immigration and its ills.

Weve got it all wrong.


Far from being abnormal, the act of going in search of a better life is at the core of the human experience. And now a new kind of nomad is emerging. What used to be a movement largely from east to west, south to north, developing to developed country is becoming more of a multilateral phenomenon with each passing day. Young people from everywhere are moving everywhere. Or rather, they are moving to where they expect to improve their lives and are turning the world into a beauty contest of cities and regions and companies vying to attract them. They are doing so because movement has become a key to their emancipation. After centuries of becoming sedentary, the future of humanity and the key to its enlightenment in the 21st century lies in re-embracing nomadism. Migration fosters the qualities that will allowour children to flourish and succeed. Our times require more migration, not less.

Part memoir, part generational manifesto, The New Nomad is both the chronicle of this revolution and a call toembraceit.
