Introduction
============

Migrant Stories is a corpus of 1017 short biographic narratives of migrants
originally published on https://iamamigrant.org/stories/ (the site no longer exists).
For the original site, the narratives had been adapted by people or organizations
submitting the particular story and eventually selected for publication by
The International Organization for Migration (IOM, the UN organization providing
help for migrants). It is a very heterogeneous sample of migrants' stories and
cannot be taken as representative or unbiased sample of migrant experiences over
the world.

In the Migrant Stories corpus, the narratives have been supplemented with meta
information about countries of origin/destination, the migrant gender, GDP per capita
of the respective countries etc., see below . . .
