With the help of our panel, we discuss forced return migration and the different power dynamics at play. What are the difficulties of forced returnees to home countries and what are the differences between the wealth and influence of certain states?
In this episode of The Migration Oxford Podcast, we are discussing forced return migration with a specific focus on returns from the US to Mexico or to Latin America. With the help of our panel, we will discuss the different power dynamics at play and the difference between the wealth and influence of certain states.
