Immigrants and Refugees as Geographers

Who is a geographer? What are the competencies necessary to practice geography?

The impact of geography on our lives is so powerful and pervasive, that often we do not think about the geographic decisions that we make every day in our personal lives. I think that we under-estimate a class of people most profoundly impacted by geography and who practice geographic analysis to make truly life changing decisions – immigrants and refugees.
