"The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable."

Its official...the next five years of my life will be spent as Director of a new @UKRI_News @GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub focusing on relationships between #migration #inequality and process of #development across 12 countries ukri.org/news/global-re…
Migration between countries in Global South accounts for nearly half of all international migration, 70% in some places, contributing to delivery of #SDGs by creating opportunities for work and the transfer of resources, knowledge and skills. But...
...as @Tanjabastia and others have shown, there is a relationship between #migration and #inequality. Benefits of #SouthSouthmigration are undermined by inequalities in migration opportunities and by limited and unequal access to rights for migrants and families. Meanwhile...

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

Wir müssen entschieden gegen #Schlepper vorgehen, um illegale #Migration zu reduzieren und das Sterben im #Mittelmeer zu beenden. Es ist daher wichtig, dass die #EU mehr Druck auf Facebook ausübt, um Aktivitäten von Schleppern dort zu unterbinden.
Gerade soziale Medien wie #Facebook haben eine große Verantwortung. Viele Menschen weltweit fallen auf die Lügen der #Schlepper herein. Sie bezahlen Tausende Euro und riskieren ihr Leben bei gefährlichen Überfahrten. Davor dürfen wir nicht länger die Augen verschließen.
Mehr dazu in meinem gemeinsamen Interview mit Äthiopiens Präsidentin @SahleWorkZewde in der @BILD -Zeitung:

A short thread on the significance of the #CDU election tomorrow in #Germany to determine #Merkel's successor as party leader [1/8]
The two front-runners are Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK), the continuity candidate, and Friedrich Merz, who wants to take the party back towards the right. Jens Spahn, a younger right-wing contender, stands less of a chance [2/8]
Polls are of limited use in predicting who will win. Most are of CDU supporters, but the party leader will be chosen by a set of 1,001 CDU delegates in Hamburg. #AKK leads among supporters but #Merz may have the edge among the delegates [3/8]

@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 1. Oder Herr #Laschet, will man sich keiner Debatte stellen, die die Schwächen des #Migrationspakts aufdecken könnte?
Es ist doch komisch das die #CDU-Fürsprecher einerseits sagen der Pakt sei nicht verbindlich, aber soll Helfen #Migration zu regulieren. Wie, wenn unverbindlich?
@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 2. Es wird auch unterschlagen das der #Migrationspakt Migration zum Menschenrecht erklären will - Was das für Staaten in der Ersten Welt bedeutet ist doch klar - Daher werden Staaten wie die #USA, #Australien, #Oesterreich, #Israel und viele mehr, den Pakt nicht unterzeichnen!
@ArminLaschet @drumheadberlin 3. Es ist auch auffällig das schon seit 2 Jahren an dem #Migrationspakt gearbeitet wird, aber die Öffentlichkeit erst jetzt davon erfährt - Echte Demokratie geht anders: Ein Pakt der die #Massenmigration begünstigt gehört öffentlich diskutiert.

Europe's border is not where you think it is. Here's why:
#humanrights #migration #refugees #IDS2018 see @visionscarto #map @CDB_77
1/5. From 2010 to 2014, the number of refugees and migrants coming to Europe increased from 60,000 to 280,000. The EU decided to crack down on migration by paying other countries to deal with migration for them.
2/5. The EU started making financial agreements with African strongmen and #dictators to ramp up #border security, technical aid and data collection. As a result, other countries are actually controlling the EU border, moving the border further south to #NorthAfrica.

1. #Midterms2018 - The Facts:
- To win the #House the #Democrats need 23 more seats: Not easy
- To win the #Senate they need 2 more and successfully defend existing seats (100 seats in total, 2 for each #state): Not easy
- I detect that the #TrumpTrain (#RedWave) runs full speed!
2. #Midterms2018 - #Trump does a lot right:
- "The Base" was well prepared: You see it at all Trump-rallies
- Trump pushes a few emotive topics (illegal #migration): He knows - "Keep it simple, stupid!" #KISS
- The numbers are on his side: #Economy & #JobNumbers great
3. #Midterms2018 - What the #Democrats do wrong:
- Too many damaged goods: #ElizabethWarren (#Fakecahontas), #HillaryClinton despite all the support, over a billion war-chest & #media on her side LOST! But they keep pushing her!
- No single winning face, to win the votes!

@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 1. #EU-#Europe before 2000 was OK: Open borders within #EU for EU-citizens, people can live & work (and study) in all EU states (so take great care who joins - went too fast too far East). The seed of destruction came with the #EURO.
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 2. More centralization & #Merkel's #RefugeesWelcome (with the will to enforce mass-#migration on other #EU states) introduce more toxic cancer cells into the #EU!
A common budget (#Macron) & an #EU-army would be the end of true #democracy & #freedom within #Europe!
@CapitalJon @PaulGambles2 @AlastairWinter @Halsrethink @dlacalle_IA @OBrienSheehan @chloechotv 3. The next step would be the likes of #Merkel, #Macron & #Juncker enforcing their will by first witholding money & next send the #EU-army to topple the likes of #Orban in #Hungary.

2. MORE RECENT: "Her catastrophic handling of her mutinous spy chief Hans-Georg #Maaßen — first promoting him, then reversing that decision — suggests she has lost a sense of perspective." #Merkel #EndTimes
3. "Days later, her own party, the conservative #CDU, turned against her. In a secret ballot on Wednesday, the #CDU’s lawmakers ousted #Merkel’s longtime ally Volker #Kauder and picked the lesser-known Ralph #Brinkhaus to lead the party’s parliamentary group." #EndTimes

Sea arrivals in #Spain are increasing.
But the closure of a #migration route doesn't mean that automatically migrants just move to a different one. There is little evidence of a 'route replacement' trend.
#migrationEU
This is an important reminder that 'immigration policies' can affect migration flows but are hardly the only factor at play. The drivers of #migration are multiple and can't be reduce to the political will 'at destination'.
There is an overall and significant decrease in sea arrivals, which should be a warning for everyone still using the word 'migration crisis', but this is not the case, see newint.org/features/web-e… #Salvini #Italy

Hat eigentlich irgendjemand diesen historischen Augenblick bemerkt? Der Text des "#GlobalCompact for Save, Orderly and Regular Migration" ist fertig un.org/pga/72/wp-cont… ! 🎉
Er formuliert 23 Ziele für geregelte #Migration, und stellt die Menschen in den Mittelpunkt.
@UNHCR_de
Diese Ziele des #GlobalCompact für Flucht und Migration sollten ab sofort der Leitfaden für unsere Politiker sein!
Es geht um Menschenrechte und geregelte "gemischte Wanderungen" mit verlässlichen Regeln.

How embarrassing for #Merkel that EU divisions over #migration policies - where some European governments or government ministers prefer to go it alone rather than to find a common EU position - is being played out - in neon-lit glaring headlines - in her own administration 1
#Merkel has always pushed for EU-wide migration solutions (though she took a rather large unilateral decision herself back in 2015 when she opened the doors to over a million asylum-seekers, in defiance of EU regulations) 2
Those regulations stipulate that irregular migrants must be processed in the first EU country they arrive in- but #Merkel argued that no-one was looking after or documenting them (remember the chaos in Greece and Hungary?) 3

I keep seeing this come up so I'm going to address it:

#Huns #Xiongnu #Migration #JustinianicPlague

First of all, here's the actual article from Nature:

nature.com/articles/s4158…
The study focused on genome sequencing of 137 individuals on the Eurasian steppes divided into five extremely broad, genetically defined phases: 3000-2100 BC, 2100-1200 BC, 1200-200 BC, 200BC-600 AD, and 600-1500 AD. The second to last of which is just broadly called "Hunnic."

THREAD-It took me a few days to reflect on what I think of the zero draft of #globalcompactmigration; having been so close to the process and substance for the last few months, my first thought is that there is a lot to take in! And that's good: we need ambition (1) #formigration
And that was not a given;many commentators say that they are 'surprised not to be disappointed'-as they usually are.Stakes are high too,with US withdrawal, Hungary on the verge and may European states concerned that #UNSG report unbalanced #formigration #globalcompactmigration(2)
There is a lot to like in 22 (!) objectives:concrete proposals on labour and skills,like #Globaskillspartnership promoted by @m_clem and on access to #socialprotection & portability of #socialsecurity;on vulnerability and missing migrants #formigration #globalcompactmigration (3)

Being overly defensive about an issue automatically makes you biased in your analysis. Denying that #racism is a problem in #Libya is wrong. It is a problem in most if not all societies.
Nevertheless, claiming #slavery is a direct symptom of racism is worse.
Slavery, although motivated by racism, was abolished through legal reform. Racism was not abolished and most probably won't be.
It is 'logical' that in the absence of rule of law & the presence of policies that negatively disrupt migratory flows, slavery COULD reemerge. #Libya
The solution to #migration and #slavery therefore involves tackling different dimensions:
- Short-term: policy changes acknowledging #EU's interception at sea is illegal
- Medium-term: improving #Libya's economic & security capacity as transit state
- Long-term: tackling racism

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
