François Crépeau, the former UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, speaks with Matthew Scott, RWI’s Team Leader for People on the Move, about migration, its causes, effects and the attitudes surrounding it.
“My generation is very afraid because we lived our childhoods in the fifties and early sixties, it was not a mobile world yet and it was not a diverse world. We are afraid of this diversity that has appeared around us without us suspecting that it would come. I think that the generation of our children, who are living in a world that is diverse and mobile, will not fear that. They will come to power in 20, 30, 40 years with a completely different attitude towards cultural, religious, linguistic diversity and towards mobility. It will be a generational change.”
