The book HUMAN CURRENTS combines multicultural and multi-perspectival approaches on the theme of migration. It invites the open-minded reader to participate in the conversations in a holistic spirit. The book’s message is accentuated as one reflects it against the current debates and people’s everyday experiences about various forms of migration.
Popular press tends to portray migration as the most prominent cause of a migraine. Why should it be unwelcome by so many? Why does it seem, so difficult to deal with it? The meaning of migration is quite natural, to begin with. According to a dictionary, it refers to the seasonal movement of animals from one region to another and movement of people from one area to another country to find work or better living conditions. In general, it is a movement from one part to another, like cell migration in plants or medicine. Why should we worry if bears migrate from Russian forests to Finnish forests or your Finnish offspring finds a loved one from Brazil and moves with him/her to where they find best living conditions and happiness? Should we worry those migrations in the same way we would worry about cancer cells migrating across our body parts?
All six perspectives offered in this book testify that migration ought not to be viewed as a cause of a headache. Powerful and disturbing images of migrating cancer cells should not be let to migrate to all conceptions of migration. The authors of this book encourage us to understand migration as a natural cure for us to flourish in the future.
