It’s often said that Scotland’s greatest export has been her people.

The term "New Scots" was primarily used to describe people of any background who have immigrated to Scotland since the 1945 as modern immigrants. #migration #history
During 1930s, many Italians who arrived in the city set up in business in the catering trades, selling ice cream, confectionery, tobacco, and fish and chips.

The Union of Italian Traders, set up in 1928, had a membership of 1,000 in Scotland ten years later.
On 10 June 1940 Italian dictator Benito Mussolini declared war on Britain. This sparked off anti-Italian riots, resulting in widespread damage to Italian shops. In Glasgow, the worst incidents took place in Maryhill, Govan and Tradeston.

1/11: Before #Covid19 the #geopolitical system was shifting from globalism & multilateralism towards a big power stand-off between #US & #China. The pandemic is accelerating this trend, as all major players struggle to cope. A thread on this, with input from @AlexWhite1812..
2/11: #China, source of the outbreak, has taken a big hit. It suppressed information & numbers. The lockdown apparently worked but was harsh. China is now struggling to reverse a backlash in world opinion through propaganda, exploiting “first recoverer” status & US disarray..
3/11: The early #US federal response was incoherent & failed any test of international leadership. Trump has been awful. But the Fed moved far and fast & some states & cities have done well. Disproportionately high fatalities would damage American prestige...

1. In the German news they now claim that a "global government" response may be needed to fight the #COVID19-crisis.
Of course the #NWO-pushers are pushing for a World Government. They always have & the #UN, the #IMF. EU-Brussels and many more will do so too!
2. That a more centralized response brings little can be seen with:
- The UN & #WHO: They failed to alert the world to a new Killer-Virus! The WHO was alerted to #COVID19 back in December 2019!
The UN was still playing the virus down end January 2020!
#Covid_19 #GlobalGovernment
3. A more centralized response brings little:
- The #EU under #VonDerLeyen has failed completely in the #COVID19-crisis. They rather push more mass-#migration (which will help spread the virus) & Von der Leyen cries that she can't push her new #GreenDeal harder!

Fear-exploiting rhetoric around the #coronavirus could provide political space to push through structural anti-migration policies.

What can be done to⬇️short-term effects of #Covid19 on #migrants?

@_jasongagnon of @OECD_Centre discusses in #DevMatters👇
"Refugee camps are some of the most densely populated places in the world. During #COVID19 residents may not be able to leave, choose where to go, or socially distance themselves."

Learn how the crisis is affecting #refugees & challenges the int'l community face➡️ #DevMatters
Border closures during #COVID19 will show our dependence on mobility of labour.

An abrupt halt to int'l #migration could threaten food supplies & affect food security in developing countries where agricultural sectors are heavily reliant on seasonal labour.

THREAD. A week ago I wrote this on the contribution that #migrants and #refugees make to the response to #coronavirus. Since then I have been collecting information on HOW this happens in different countries to learn for the future.
#migration #COVID19…
At @ODIdev we will be tracking and analysing these actions/innovations, for now here is an overview

First up the #USA where #NY state takes action allowing qualified graduates of foreign medical schools to contribute to the #Covid_19 emergency response…
Still in the #USA, the State Department is on the lookout for medical professionals abroad willing to work in the #US. As long as they have a valid visa....mhh.....🙄

Thrilled we finished this 8 yr study w/@NeuroCellPress Wonder what oxygen, blood vessels, Hif1 has to do with cell polarity & neuron migration? Genetics, gaussian & lattice light-sheet crack the case! Cerebellar blood vessels in cyan #cellfie #Science…
The story starts w/great chances to interact w/ world-class scientists @StJudeResearch On a visit here, Bill Kaelin @kaelin_lab asked me a question: your favorite polarity reg protein is hypoxia-responsive, does O2 impact migration initiation? Following up led to this study.
Everyone #TakeABow that did the #work: this paper is our second in row where we had at least four equal contribution first authors. A multiyear and multidiscipline project like this needs teamwork.

A thread to cover some of the major - and I mean seriously, shockingly major - gaps, mistakes and problems with the #environmental impact assessment for Montijo airport in #Portugal.

First up: no #fieldwork. AT ALL. 1/
That's right – the EIA of a major international #airport proposed for the country’s most important #wetland site for #bird #conservation didn’t bother to actually count any #birds.

Instead, they depended on studies already published for other reasons.

How did that work out? 2/
Well, the data on birds feeding in the #intertidal- the largest and most important #habitat in the #SPA- was collected in 2002-3.

In the 17 years since, the #Tagus has changed a lot for birds. Improved #water treatment but drastic increase in #shellfish harvesting. 3/

After a long time, a story i did is making me feeling gud. I travelled to Ranchi which is trying to attract garment exporters. Right moves hav brought gud change
The story appears tomorrow in @Magazine_ET. @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87
Here's my thread:
@Magazine_ET @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87 At @ORIENTCRAFTJOBS factory in Khelgaon #Ranchi #Jharkhand Ashar, 18, is speech & hearing impaired. Grew up feeling like a burden on everyone, he conveys in signs. He now has a job. Earns Rs 9000 plus a month. Sheer pleasure seeing him work with such intensity 1/n
@Magazine_ET @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87 @ORIENTCRAFTJOBS Every morning, outside the plant young women from near & faroff villages wait all day hoping to land a job. Already 2300 workers, mostly women work here. The moment i start talking to them i stoke their hope. Each has a story to tell - of poverty & their desperation for job 2/n

There is a crisis in 26 African countries. At least, according to the EU. Because a crisis clause, hidden in a European decision, allows the EU to circumvent her own procurement rules. #migration #eutf👇
2. We're talking about the European Union Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF): created in the summer of 2015 at the height of the "refugee crisis". It had to provide a quick and flexible way of funding programs to tackle "the root causes of migration and displacement in Africa".
3. The problem: the EU is bypassing its own public procurement rules. It does so on the basis of a hidden clause in the founding documents of the fund, which declares a crisis in ALL countries the fund operates. That includes stable countries like Ghana and Senegal.

#Migration #Libya Do you know that more than 30% (personal estimate) of national @UNHCRLibya partner staff have resigned in the last 2 years? Can you guess why?

- Those are experienced people who held key positions & managed the work since 2014 when #UNHCR wasn't on the ground.
- One has refused a management position just because of the current mess & the sudden redirection of #refugees from GDF/Detention to the CDC.
- Others were burning out due to the moral clashes they face in their daily work that contradicts their idea of #humanitarianPrinciples
Many others including myself 3 years ago, I was a partner staff to #UNHCR in #Libya
I wasn't satisfied with the knowledge gap& the top-down approach from UNHCR to its frontline partners as risk transfer strategy, AND for not providing efficient aid while we had potential+capacity

1/7 #Juso-#Bundeskongress: Personelle Zukunft der #SPD verabschiedet sich endgültig vom Geist des Godesberger Programms: Zurück zum #Sozialismus!

Jusos wollen "Linkswende", #Verstaatlichung und staatl. organisierte #Massenmigration nach Deutschland. ➡️…
2➡️ "Neuordnung" von Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft durch #Verstaatlichung: Grund und Boden, große Fabriken samt Maschinen, der Daseinsvorsorge dienende Einrichtungen, große Logistikstandorte, Banken, "Kapitalvermögen, die eine festgesetzte Grenze überschreiten". ➡️
3➡️"180-Grad-Wende" beim Wohnen: Privatwirtschaftliche Organisation von Wohnraum dürfe "nur noch die Ausnahme" sein. Öffentlicher Wohnungsbau solle forciert werden, Wohnbaugenossenschaften gestärkt werden, #Verstaatlichung von „Großunternehmen auf dem Wohnungsmarkt“.➡️

#Ltwth19 - #Thüringen - Erste #Prognose (18:00, #ZDF):
#CDU 22.5% (-11%, Wahl 2014: 33.5%)
#Linke 29.5% (2014: 28.5%)
#AfD 24% (+13.4%, 2014: 10.6%)
#SPD 8.5% (2014: 12.4%)

#Andere 5% (2014: 7.2%)
#Wahlen #Höcke #AKK #Scholz
2. Klasse Weder #RotRotGruen, noch #Zimbabwe möglich!

Frage ist auch ob es die FDP schafft. #Gruene auch nahe 5%!

Die Volksparteien sind Geschichte: Zusammen gerade 31%!

Will man die #AfD ausschließen (man will!) wird man sich weiter kleinregieren.
Und Das Ist Gut So!
3. #Ltwth19 - LEARNING:
- #AfD-Bashing bringt der AfD MEHR Wähler! Fast 140% Zugewinn & über 3 x mehr Sitze im #Landtag!
- Der #Gruene Hype "ischt over"! #GretaThunberg is so yesterday! Verbotspartei Nein Danke!
- #Merkel-#CDU verliert 1/3 aller Wähler (an AfD?)

Little #thread about @UNHCRLibya & their registration process in #Libya.

According to the UNHCR, registration is an important tool in ensuring the integrity of refugee protection systems & preventing fraud, corruption & crime, including trafficking.…
In #Libya, UNHCR is registering asylum seekers & refugees only belonging to 9 nationalities.

5.South Sudanese
7. Ethiopian

Full data
In #Libya, I met with people people in detention, like John, who has been held in Tarik Al Sika Detention Center for more than 2 years. He only received a piece of paper from UNHCR with his registration number.

Incoming #EU High Rep @JosepBorrellF’s first speech gave us a glimpse of #EUdiplomacy’s next 5 years. #EPhearings2019

His endorsement by the Parliament was never in doubt. Still, Borrell’s energetic speech went further than expected.

2/ Borrell shared views with his trademark outspoken tone and all the famed sides of his character:

☞ The mature #EU integration enthusiast and former European Parliament President

☞ The responsible internationalist development buff

☞ The assertive Spanish foreign minister
3/ Borrell raised a shield in defence of the rule-based multilateral order, pointing to Ukraine as evidence of the dangers ahead if it keeps unraveling.

The sub-text: ‘I am not just talking about Moscow being unilateral, Mr Trump’.…

#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.

Nächste Runde der #ibizagate „Paartherapie“ zw @sebastiankurz u @norbertghofer bei @corinnamilborn auf @puls4
Ernsthaft, @norbertghofer verteidigt nicht nur Kontakte zu #Identitäre sondern auch noch den völlig untragbaren NS- „Zahnbürsten“-Sager von @GernotDarmann 🤦‍♂️ Da lässt er seine Maske mal fallen - soll wohl klares Signal an Rechtsradikale FPÖ-Sympathisanten sein, #teufel noch eins
#kurz schließt Herbert #kickl nun also doch nur mehr als Innenminister aus🤔

Why #OpenBorders?

There is a wide and diverse support base for open borders that includes arguments from actors working from varied ideological backgrounds.

@Free_Migration has worked to distill the information presented on #freemigration
Moral Argument

The arguments for the moral case for #openborders can be designated into three ideological categories, arguments from the libertarian perspective, arguments from the left and faith based arguments.
Arguments from the Libertarian Perspective

Libertarianism is a moral and political philosophy that argues in favor of a strong presumption of letting people engage freely in mutually consensual activity and on minimizing coercion in society.#freemigration #opennorders
