"Free movement is seen as an unworkable position - but it is our current immigration system, both in the UK and globally, that is unworkable." - Nadia Whittome, MP & Zoe Gardner

People need safe, legal and global free movement regardless of where they're from, where they're heading, or how much money they have. While today global free movement sounds like a Utopian idea, it's largely already a reality - for the rich.

So how do we get to a world where free movement is the default, and not just for the wealthiest? Is it possible? And what could a world with global free movement look like?
