Description

What is the difference between being an expat and an immigrant? Can a citizen still be a migrant? Originally from Australia, Sue-Ann Harding was a migrant in the UK at the University of Manchester researching Russia's Beslan hostage disaster, and is now an expat in Qatar at Hamad Bin Khalifa University. She draws on television portrayals of migrants and personal experience to explore and challenge the ideas we have about migration.
