I see two opposing trends. On the one hand I see a stress on the local situation in which people live. A movement of more political power for a small entity. On the other hand globalisation is getting stronger and stronger. In so many houses objects from all over the world have found a place.
One of the results of globalization are the constant streams of migration. In itself this is not something new, people have moved from one place to another, from one culture to another. But the space covered by the modern migrations is larger and more diverse than in the past.
Here you find some stories from writers who have migrated, once, twice, and even more often. Some of these writers have a connection with Africa.
