We live in “the age of migration” because human mobility has become one of the most emblematic contemporary phenomena. Thanks to new communication technologies and modern transportation means mobility across long distances is also easier. People look for new opportunities but also for ways to escape from countries with conflict zones, environmental disasters etc.
To make this complex issue more understandable, Peipsi Center for Transboundary Cooperation has published teaching material. This material is meant for educators and teachers to give information on global trends, statistics related to refugee issues in the world and Estonia. Detailed information is given on legal issues, terminology; also links to useful materials and maps, and to organisations, working with refugees.
The material is available in Pdf format and paper copies are distributed to Peipsi CTC partner schools in Estonia.
