    • The first three chapters were written by a trans-national team from Italy, Germany and Finland during the Politics Spring School that took place in April 2011 in Crete, Greece.
    • Initially, the story focused on situations in which migrants, refugees and expatriates outnumber the “original” population.
  • The Story of Migrants
    • The team of writers had three different cases in mind –
      • the island of Lampedusa in Italy (and the stream of refugees),
      • the migrant districts in Berlin (where ‘original’ Germans are minority) and
      • the European metropol Brussels (where the proportion of migrants is expected to be about 70% by 2020).
  • The Story of Migrants
    • Each of the chapters represents a visit to one of these locations and talks about the migrant communities from either the visitor’s or the migrant’s perspective .
