Explaining Migration https://knowledge4policy.ec.europa.eu/publication/why-do-people-migrate-infographic_en – an infographic (can be downloaded as a PDF in higher resolution) showing some theories to explain migration – good for going beyond the over-simple ‘push-pull’ model.
Teaching About Ethical Global Issues https://www.mmu.ac.uk/research/research-centres/esri/projects/teaching-sustainable-development – the HEADSUP tool in this project (see downloadable PDF) helps to approach migration geography critically.
A really good key source for teachers to engage with academic geography of migration is: Castles, S. de Haas, H. and Miller, M.J. (2019) The Age of Migration: International Population Movements in the Modern World (sixth edition). Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.
