The 2nd Chapter and the linked national cards describe the experiences of the migrating people analysing their situation and their feelings just before leaving their country: what (and whom) they left behind and what they were looking for when they left.
The 3rd Chapter also deals with migrating people’s experience. This chapter, both in the main text and in the national cards, focus particularly on the new, “second” life of the migrants in the new country they migrated to.
