    The Migration Podcast is an initiative by the IMISCOE network- the largest network of migration scholars in Europe. In this episode, Melissa Siegel speaks about the aspirations that drive people’s decisions to live elsewhere. Through her research, Melissa debunks the idea that people migrate only to escape poverty and conflict, and that development in sending countries reduces emigration.
