‘Migration’ looks at the movement of peoples across the globe from a diasporic point of view. When applied to migration, the term diaspora tends to homogenize the experiences of large groups. If used properly, however, it can illuminate particular aspects of migration. There is little point applying the idea of diaspora to prehistoric migration, as little evidence exists. Jewish diaspora has a theological basis. Whilst tarring all Jewish migration as diasporic is inaccurate, intolerance has pushed many Jewish communities around the globe. Similarly, African and Irish migration can be linked to slavery and famine, but non-related migration has also occurred. Western historical bias has skewed the understanding of Asian migration.
