'Let's be honest about immigration': Prof. Henrietta Moore's article in the Telegraph demands a reconsideration of the dominant immigration narrative
Friday 20 February 2015
In an article for the Telegraph, Professor Henrietta Moore debates the appropriateness of media responses to immigration. She uses the facts to bring to bear a less-discussed question: why are so many people globally on the move?
If we are to address immigration, Prof. Moore calls for a deeper understanding of 'why people would be willing to uproot their whole lives and move to a strange land in the first place'.
The question, of course, turns the burden of responsibility on the 'global north' and our resource-demanding habits.

'Why Scandinavia is not the model for global prosperity we should all pursue': Professor Henrietta Moore highlights the flaws in a seemingly ideal system
In an article for the Guardian Professor Henrietta Moore reframes the question. She asks: 'Should we all be aiming to be Norway? Indeed, is that goal even desirable?'
Prof. Moore presents an alternative narrative for Scandinavia, which tells a very different story from that usually put forth. She touches on issues of sustainability and over-reliance on non-renewable energy sources, and highlights their carbon impact. The unique nature of the Scandinavian nations as small, homogenous populations is cited as another reason not to emulate their model.
Prof. Moore implicitly calls for a more holistic and balanced attitude to models for prosperity.
