    Main Topic
    Migration: The Human Journey is the theme that the National Geographic provided for this years Geography Awareness Week. We discuss the likely influence of the Genographic Project on the choice of this theme and major migrations through human history (and prehistory). Modern impacts of migration, such as recent events in Paris, are also touched on.
