The New Nomads – Event with Felix Marquardt

The New Nomads – author event with Felix Marquardt

STOCKHOLM | Friday 27th August at 17:30. Free!

We’re excited to welcome Felix Marquardt to the Stockholm shop on Friday 27th August for a book presentation and signing! Outdoor event in the backyard behind the bookshop (Rain? The event moves inside, limited seating inside – pandemic precautions in place.)

Welcome to listen to him presenting his new book The New Nomads – How the Migration Revolution is Making the World a Better Place.

In conversation with Therese Larsson Hultin, SvD Foreign Affairs Analyst.

What if migrants, rather than the point of contention they have become, were the key to bridging the divide of our polarized politics?

In our collective consciousness, the term ‘migration’ conjures up ­images of hordes of refugees fleeing ‘their’ country, escaping on rafts and coming to invade ‘ours’. And immigration is viewed as a problem to be solved.

We’ve got it all wrong.
