The Camden Conference and Kennebunk Free Library host Kathleen Sutherland on February 6 at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to all.
This is the second of two lectures on immigration’s impact on Global Trade and Politics. 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.
