Argentina: ¿Mejor en Alepo que en Córdoba? El día que Tawfiq Touma lo dijo por primera vez, nadie podía creerlo.

Argentina: ¿Mejor en Alepo que en Córdoba?

"Me quiero volver a Alepo, no puedo más, echo de menos demasiadas cosas". Tawfiq vivía con su mujer, Ani, y sus dos hijas adolescentes en Pilar, un pequeño pueblo cercano a Córdoba, a 700 kilómetros de Buenos Aires. Habían llegado allí con un programa de acogida de sirios, huyendo de la guerra. Pero no lograron adaptarse y preferían volver. Argentina, tierra de inmigrantes, tiene una comunidad de origen sirio importante —el expresidente Carlos Menem lo es y también la esposa de Mauricio Macri, Juliana Awada— y ha decidido abrir las puertas para que lleguen refugiados.

Los Touma son los primeros que regresan. Tawfiq tiene la espalda destrozada porque se le cayó un televisor encima tras una explosión. "Estamos muy bien, estamos contentos de estar aquí", repiten en los mensajes Tawfiq y Ani. Los Touma tuvieron suerte. Hafez Barbar consiguió trabajo rápidamente, al contrario que Tawfiq.

Al menos 34 muertos y 1.800 migrantes rescatados en una operación masiva en el Mediterráneo

Autoridades, ONG y algunos buques mercantiles han amanecido este miércoles con 12 operaciones de rescate simultáneas a aproximadamente 30 millas (unos 50 kilómetros) de las costas libias, todos ellos coordinados por el Centro de Rescate de Roma. En ellas han sido rescatados al menos 1.800 migrantes que se subieron en Libia —previo pago de miles de euros a las mafias— a barcos de madera y de goma de dudosa resistencia. Al menos 34 han fallecido, entre los cuales se encuentran una decena de niños, según ha informado la Guardia Costera italiana. What does migration bring? All That We Share.

Videographic: Migration. Net migration rate by country - Thematic Map - World. Definition: This entry includes the figure for the difference between the number of persons entering and leaving a country during the year per 1,000 persons (based on midyear population).

Net migration rate by country - Thematic Map - World

An excess of persons entering the country is referred to as net immigration (e.g., 3.56 migrants/1,000 population); an excess of persons leaving the country as net emigration (e.g., -9.26 migrants/1,000 population). The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change. High levels of migration can cause problems such as increasing unemployment and potential ethnic strife (if people are coming in) or a reduction in the labor force, perhaps in certain key sectors (if people are leaving).

Description: The map displayed here shows how Net migration rate varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator.

Discuss the map of human migration around the world.Project or distribute copies of the map Patterns of Human Migration and have students look at the current patterns of migration across the globe. Tell students that the thickness of the arrows indicates amounts of people migrating: thicker arrows indicate major migration streams and thinner arrows indicate minor migration streams. Emphasize to students that the arrows reflect current migration patterns and not composition of populations. Ask: From which continent(s) are the most people emigrating? Remind students of some common push factors and pull factors, such as better job opportunities (pull) or war (push). Maps of Immigrants and Emigrants Around the World.

Migration - Geography & History 2 ESO DIGITAL Castilla-La Mancha

Migrants make a conscious choice to leave their country to seek a better life elsewhere. Emigrants are people who leave their country of origin. Immigrants are people who enter a country that is not their place of origin. This movement of population has occurred throughout history. The study of migration not only involves where people come and go from, but also the number of people moving around the planet, the distance they travel, their reasons for migrating and the consequences.
