→ Migrant Journal explores the circulation of people, goods, information, and even fauna and flora, around the world and the transformative impact they have on contemporary life. While migration is part of humanity’s genesis, it seems the phenomenon has become ubiquitous, happening faster, with complex ramifications. Migrant Journal aims at exploring the relationship between these elements, events, journeys and spaces bound under the idea of ‘migration’ in all its forms, crucial to understand today’s society.

The theme of Migrant Journal’s first issue is ‘Across Country’—it focuses on the forgotten rural land as the stage of our present migration tragedy; the space that is drastically shaped by climate change and conflicts, but also by the infrastructure of the modern world: high-voltage power lines, freeways and cargo railway systems. In an attempt to understand the interconnections and frictions between those layers it reports on the extrem drought in Iran, drug cartels in Guatemalan villages, shifting borders as a result of climate change and much more.
