Inverting the migration conversation

Stories regarding the Persian Gulf and it’s migrant communities from South Asia and the Philippines have had narratives written about them by coconut academics; brown outside, white inside pandering to western human right agendas (while western expatriates for decades have earned billions over the last fifty years of Gulf Oil Boom/ vested interests are severe)

It’s high time that narratives are written from the ground up, and it would be wonderful if a few academics or normal folks can document, narrative and invert the conversation.

Write to inform and engage, this tenure track business creates agendas. I thank Prof Mohan Dutta for bestowing the training to attempt to record these stories although I work in the engineering business again!
