In Arrival City: How the Largest Migration in History is Reshaping Our
World, Doug Saunders examines the impact of the massive flow of rural
people to urban areas, both within the nations of the developing world
and from poorer countries to richer ones. He describes how these
migrants moved through "arrival cities" -- particular neighbourhoods
that, when successful, provided a pathway to integration into urban life.
In this presentation, Saunders will describe how the "arrival cities"
within US and Canadian metropolitan areas have in recent years moved
to the suburbs, creating new obstacles to the incorporation of migrants
into the life and economy of the broader community.
