Material Module 3: Context Factors for Migration and Forced Displacement

An e-learning-session about context factors for migration and forced displacement

Here an e-learning session is offered. The following e-learning-session introduces factors which drive people to leave their origin country and to seek a better life in a destination country – so called push- and pull- factors. But first this session begins with the difference between a migrant and a forcibly displaced person. It continues with the relationship between countries of origin and destination. Furthermore, factors with a high influence on migration and forced displacement in the future are highlighted before a final summary concludes the learning unit.
