The migration and resettlement of the inhabitants of Nubia was considered one of the most important events of its kind in the history of the United Arab Republic. It represented a necessary displacement of people from their lands and homes caused by the construction of the High Dam. No one can determine exactly the extent of social change that has already taken place in New Nubia. This chapter suggests that the Nubians are generally happy and enthusiastic about their new homeland and the care given them by the state. This fine beginning to such a large-scale migration operation was seen as an achievement and has set the stage for further measures contemplated by the state toward realizing more social and economic stability for the Nubians in their new homeland.
