Social and Cultural Effects of Migration on Human Society Countries




Museum, cultural heritage, archeology, migration museum, migration


Mankind has created countless works that express themselves and their civilizations, both in line with their beliefs and in line with their values, while realizing their social, political and economic orders within the primitive state orders.Throughout the ages, human beings have had to leave their villages, cities and countries due to reasons such as war and natural disasters, following the desire to reach more suitable living conditions. In recent years, the war in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Ukraine has forced more than 6 million people to leave their countries. As a result of the earthquake in Turkey in 2023, more than 1 million people, whose homes, workplaces, schools and hospitals were destroyed, migrated from their cities to other cities.Many immigrants who set out to migrate to Europe from Africa every year in order to have better living conditions die in the Mediterranean Sea. For this purpose, they even risk their lifes. Many problems await agricultural workers who want to set off from South America and reach America and Canada.Language, accommodation and education of immigrants constitute a major problem. Immigrants create their own private living spaces. They marry citizens of their own city, country. In another country, they are establishing their micro-countries by creating their own micro-habitats. Even after years, immigrants do not give up on the culture, social structure and language characteristics of the countries they come from.The phenomenon of immigration existed in the past. There is today too. It will be in the future.Ensuring inter-country trade and social solidarity can be made possible by reflecting cultural and artistic activities in museums. Countries are doing certain studies on this issue. In this study, the museum of migration is examined and the exhibition of intercultural communication in the museum is discussed. In many migration museums, a global holistic approach has not been followed. While this situation gives rise to an integrative understanding of cultural heritage, it is reflected in the political relations between countries. This study aims to make up for the lack of this subject in the literature and to draw attention within the framework of the literature reviews.
