International migration has become a major political issue worldwide. This course presents an overview of the main issues raised by the cross-border movements of people. It will introduce students to current trends in migration flows, to the different types of human mobility and the dynamics behind them, and to governments’ responses to the social, political and legal challenges raised by international migration. The course material is organized to reflect on the social issues such as social mobility, poverty, gender, inequality and citizenship as they relate to different types of international mobility. Particularly, we will look at changing trends in global mobility, at theories explaining international mobility, forced migration, migrant integration; the impact of migration in sending and receiving societies, the basic methods used for analyzing migration related issues. This course will not only seek to learn from, but also to evaluate, critique, and expand existing methods. In addition, students will have the opportunity to develop their own professional thinking in this field.
Taking the recent mass refugee movement as the case study, this course aims to offer participants an understanding of the complex and varied nature of global migration in general and forced migration in specific and their centrality to global, regional and national processes of political, social and economic change and of the needs of displaced people themselves.
