The sea we share: Migratory networks
The organisation of migrations in the 19th century and nowadays is different. Xabier Alberdi and Ane Irazabal explain in this video.
In the 19th century the recently emancipated American Republics propitiated the arrival of emigrants to these countries. Companies also worked on capturing migrants to take them there, and very often they paid off their passage to America with work.
In the 21st century we are now seeing that in recent years Europe has built walls and fences, and has closed its borders .. the message conveyed by Europe is: “You are not welcome".
