The Atlas of Migrations - by Le Monde & La Vie[Reading report] by Céline Lévy

2012-08-03

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011-2012. She also holds a Bachelor degree in Human Sciences from Oxford University. Céline Lévy interests herself a lot for microfinance and for synergies between the public and private sectors, for initiatives promoting economic development.

The Atlas of Migrations is a corpus of analysis and case studies of human migrations. The group of experts that contributed to the volume presents an analysis of migrations throughout time and space: the reader gains an insight into the processes of the past, present and future - across the globe. Migrations entail a number of far-reaching issues. The last two chapters of the Atlas particularly stress the social, environmental and health challenges.
