“21st-century Human Migration and Global Trade.”-Kathleen Sutherland on ZOOM
January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST
The Camden Conference and Prince Memorial Library in Cumberland present Kathleen Sutherland on Tuesday, January 17 at 6:30 p.m. This is the second of two lectures on immigration’s impact on global trade and politics. Please register for the zoom HERE.
Migration is caused by people searching for a better material life and safety. What is the effect of this migration process on global trade? We look at the late Twentieth and Twenty First Century picture and in particular the impact of increased migration to the U.S. from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Discussion will also include the economic impact of migration from Asia and Africa to Europe.
Kathleen Howard Sutherland (Ph.D. Indiana University) is Associate Professor Emerita of Political Science at Bowling Green State University. She teaches at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Southern Maine. She presented a paper on Somali and Sudanese refugees at the Middle East Studies Association Annual Meeting.
