Transforming lives on four continents

People movements (issue 3/07)

People move homes for a variety of reasons: conflict, natural disaster, work, education - or simply the desire for a better life.

This issue of Mission Catalyst takes a in-depth look at people on the move both worldwide and closer to home, and challenges us to what our reaction should be.

Articles include:

  • a focus on the way asylum seekers and refugees are publicly perceived
  • a look at urbanisation in one part of Latin America
  • an investigation into the impact migration has on society.

There are also a host of essentials quotes, facts and statistics and a thought-provoking Bible reflection on the theme.
