Mar phàirt de Thilleadh Dhachaigh 2009, chaidh co-labhairt eadar-nàiseanta trì latha - Buaidh Chruinneil na h-Alba - a chumail ann an Taigh-chluiche Eden Court, Inbhir Nis, bho 22-24 Dàmhair. Thàinig sgoilearan, eachdraichean is eòlaichean eile còmhla gus deasbaireachd fhallain a bhrosnachadh mu eachdraidh imrich agus a' bhuaidh a bha aig muinntir na h-Alba thall-thairis.

Rinn Am Baile agallamhan le grunn luchd-labhairt rè na co-labhairt. San earrainn chlaistinnich seo, tha an Proifeasair Eric Richards a' freagairt na ceiste:

"Am b'urrainn dhut innse dè na rudan a tha coltach/eadar-dhealaichte eadar eòlas an eilthirich an-diugh agus, can, tràth san 19mh linn?"

'Well, the thing about emigration is that it is an enormous phenomenon and it contains millions of lives, so it depends what you're talking about. In the early nineteenth century there are increasing mass migration out of Britain, from all parts, and it eventually builds up to very large numbers indeed. In the early nineteenth century we have many rural folk leaving Britain and quite a - an increasing number of urban people leaving. Now, some of those rural folk, from the Highlands who I've looked at coming into Australia, really were very wealthy people, very tough characters, very entrepreneurial captains of rural industry; pretty pushy characters, in fact, many of them. Others were perfectly ordinary, middle of the road people from rural Scotland, rural Ireland. Some were extremely poor and they were - I would call economic refugees - who collected up in the mid-nineteenth century by the Highlands and Islands Emigration Society. Some of them have to be fed properly and especially to acclimatise them - prepare them for the journey - and they are extremely, in extremely poor condition, travelling to Australia, and they arrive in conditions which are really very difficult.

And it occurred to me at once stage that they were not entirely unlike some of the mid-twentieth or the late-twentieth century migrants coming to Australia, and elsewhere, as boat people; that they are so poor, they are so poorly looked upon by many people who are receiving them, they receive such a frigid reception, and they have such tough times, that they are rather similar to some of those coming in these days as boat people, as refugees from awful circumstances. But that's a tiny narrow segment of the colossal- You know, we're talking about fifty two million people leaving Europe over the long century so it's a massive story.'
