Who are world citizen, refugee, migrants? Home is sweet home , what is an expatriate, exactly? Have you been an expat an immigrant?
In the last decade or so, many people, especially those of us from emerging economies have increasingly identified as not just citizens of one nation, but also as part of a global citizenry.
Are maids expats? Yes they are. Are construction workers in Singapore that you see on the building sites expats?
Who is a business expatriate? If those has citizenship of the country are they still called expats?
Some says “,expatriates, who re rich, educated, developed elites,” . “Others are just migrants or immigrants. But logically that’s not the correct way to look at these things.
“We’ have got migrants all wrong?
Migrants, by definition “are people who intend to go and live in a county for a long time and they’re not allowed to. They have to go home when they’ve completed their assignment,”.
Participants may give their definition of their current or past status in Turkey and overseas.
