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:

"Nam biodh tu a' dèanamh eilthireachd an-diugh, dè a bhiodh tu ag ionndrainn bhon dachaigh?"

'Well again, it's this globalised world. I mean, communication is so much more instantaneous and much more reliable. What you'd miss would be your family. You'd miss the weather, I think, if you were going to Australia. I think we've become so globalised that it's, it's instantaneous; I mean we can talk immediately to anyone back home. One can see them directly. It's almost as though they're living in another suburb now and it's not nearly quite so definitive and wrenching as it used to be. So I think that the world has changed very significantly with regard to migration and it's, it's - there's an awful lot of migration nowadays which is not permanent. There's a lot of circular migration, short term migration, re-migration. It's a profoundly more mobile world for western people particularly. It's different for people of course in other parts of the world; if you're migrating out of Africa, or if you're migrating in certain parts of Asia, it's, the similarities between the nineteenth century and this time are not so great.

The dissimilarities are not so great. People are still very poor when they leave rural parts; they move to cities; they try to move across countries and into other countries, and now there are in fact more impediments to those people than the people in the nineteenth century were facing. So we now have a curiously divided world where some migration is much easier, and much more mobile for people like us in the western world but in the world which is undergoing rapid industrialisation and movement from the countryside in Africa, in parts of Latin America, and in southeast Asia, the movements of people are huge, colossal in numbers, and they are restricted by international constraints on movement. So, moving from Scotland to Australia, say, in 1850, was easier than moving from Indonesia to Australia today, and that's a bit of a paradox in the, in the growing story of migration.'
