Opening borders, for Diaspora is Home

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This essay calls for the opening up borders as one of the appropriate responses to climate change. I draw on the courage of our voyaging ancestors to find home in foreign lands, on the ongoing migration of peoples from Oceania and beyond, and on the shifting appreciation for diaspora. With home signifying belonging, diaspora can still be home for many. In this connection, securing borders does not protect homes but prevent those from becoming homely. Border securing prevents places and thoughts from becoming homes, whereas opening borders makes those home. Opening borders is more than signifying, it is also about homing.
