Today Laura Pergolizzi is answering to us! Hereunder you can read her considerations and thoughts.
1. Is migration a right? Migration is a right. The human being, as an animal on the Earth, has the full right to cross it without any limitation.
2. Is migration a source of development for the economy and the whole society? Economy is the expression of every country social growth and migration is the fuel of this social growth.
3. Can we consider development as human right? Development is not a human right but it could be a goal which is achieved in a society in which human right are granted.
4. Can migration be a resource also for the migrant’s country of origin? The migrant’s country of origin can have an economic benefit (he can send home some money that of course will circulate within the country) and a social benefit (if and when the migrant will go back home, he will bring with him new knowledge and instruments to be used and differed to his society).
5. How does the migrant citizen contribute to our country’s national wealth and welfare? The foreigner contributes to maintain high levels of social benefit by contribution to the GDP.
6. Can the freedom of movement and circulation favor better opportunities for development both in the country of origin and in the country of residence of the migrant citizen? The freedom of circulation is the development core.
7. How to communicate migration as a development process? We can communicate it by figuring out how could we feel if we actually couldn’t leave our country when it is in critical conditions.
8. How do migration policies influence the chances for a foreign citizen to be a resource and a source of wealth for the country where he/she live? By assuring them the same rights that are granted in the host country, without any exception or dispensation. The watchword is equality.
