Voyage

For many the voyage itself is perilous – 40,000 migrants have died in transition since 2000. Experts suspect that for every one of the 40,000 dead bodies discovered, there are at least two others that were never recovered.

Migration

Along with death and birth, migration is among the primary components of population change. One billion of the seven billion people on our planet are displaced from their place of origin. Despite genuine efforts to make new homes, their deep ethnic, educational, and economic disadvantages separate them from their new society. They remain isolated, invisible, and ignored.
