Monday Morning Meetings on Migration
About This Show
Over the course of the last 12 months, the demand for informed commentary on the politics of migration has expanded rapidly. In a period where migration scholars ought to be turning people away at the door, they are struggling to have their voices heard in a rapidly shifting debate. This podcast on migration and politics aims to generate theoretically and politically engaged discussion on the relationships between human mobility, space and power.

The Trump Presidency: The Real First 100 Days
November 14 2016 – Austin Kocher
In this episode we come back to the conversation we had last March with Austin Kocher – PhD student at the Department of Geography of the Ohio State University – on how a possible Trump Presidency would affect US immigration policy. As we all know, against all odds Trump was indeed elected as the new President of the United States. And as becomes apparent now that he will most likely (be able to) come through on his anti-immigration ‘promises’, Kocher concludes that the silver lining in all this is that people are showing up and standing up against xenophobic, racist and sexist immigration issues; and that eventually our only true hope against such forces is a new internationalism: a solidarity movement across borders.
