In Passport to Freedom, Arab nationals from Syria, Iraq, and Egypt describe what led them either to flee their country as refugees or go abroad to set up a new life - and, in the process, get dual nationality and a second passport. The 2011 revolutions sparked an increase in the numbers of emigrants, wanting to escape political instability and economic uncertainty in several Arab countries. "Emigration used to be a way of solving economic problems to achieve an end," explains Ayman Zohry, a population and migration expert at the American University of Cairo.
