Are we a nation of talkers instead of doers? Are we elitist? For many years, many Zambians have sat around and discussed solutions to our countries problem often blaming the government, department heads etc for the deterioration of our schools, hospitals, roads etc.

The ZBTR Roundtable will examine the issue of return migration which is increasingly becoming a major theme in migration studies as the number of immigrants returning to their home countries is increasing.

When is it right to return home? To what extent does the political situation influence this decision?
