About

Yasin Kakande is a 2017-2018 TED Fellow and author of an upcoming book exploring the long history and current developments of global migration patterns as they apply to Africans. As a migrant from Uganda, first in the Middle East and now in the U.S., Kakande strives to fill in a migrant’s voice in the ongoing global debate over refugees and migrants. His previous two books The Ambitious Struggle (2013) and Slave States (2015) chronicled the abuses and exploitation of migrants, who work in the Middle East. He works as a freelance international journalist, including assignments for Thomson Reuters and Al Jazeera, and is a frequent contributor to many digital publications and websites.
