People's History Series 2014: Migrant Settlement

People’s History Series 2014: Migrant Settlement

The next presentation in this year’s People’s History series will be on Wednesday 5 November, at 5:30pm, at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea, Queens Wharf, 3 Jervois Quay, Wellington.  Judi Altinkaya will speak on ‘Migrant Settlement’, sharing her findings on the journey of migrants to New Zealand.

Migrants have significantly transformed our Kiwi society over the years.  The migrant journey is not always an easy path. When we look across the history of migration to New Zealand, the challenges for migrants settling into living and working here are not new.  Judi Altinkaya, who has an extensive background in immigration work, asks the question, “what is new is how the New Zealand Government supports these challenges today?” Find out how, and why in this unique discussion.
