In this episode of The Migration Oxford Podcast, we are discussing the politics of emigration. All countries are countries of immigration and of emigration, yet the politics of emigration are often less obsessed over as attitudes toward immigration.
We ask, what are the political effects of emigration on sending countries? How does understanding perceptions of emigration help us to elucidate the changing demographic dynamics including population decline, ‘brain drain’, aging populations? We discuss these topics with the help of Dr. Anna Kyriazi, a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Milan, Dr. Julia Rone, a postdoctoral researcher at the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy at the University of Cambridge, and Madeleine Reeves, Professor in the Anthropology of Migration here at the University of Oxford.
