Desperate Millions Flee Poverty, Persecution and Inequality

Desperate Millions Flee Poverty, Persecution and Inequality. YaleGlobal. Joergen Oerstroem Moeller. June 11, 2015.

The world confronts an immigration challenge as vast numbers flee conflict and religious persecution in the Middle East and South Asia along with stark poverty in Africa and South America. The world has 50 million forcibly displaced people, and millions more leave their homelands in search of opportunity. “A cruel dichotomy is coming to rule the world,” explains Moeller. “Elites from developing nations join forces with the wealthy in the developed countries, and the masses of poor are left to fend for themselves without hope and leadership.” Moeller calls for global cooperation and financial investment to tackle root causes of mass migrations.
