Course Description : This workshop will offer students the opportunity to research, present and discuss case studies exploring the many ways in which migrants, as individuals or communities, become objects and possibly agents of policymaking processes in large metropolises. Following an introductory session that will help framing the issue through discussion of current trends and events, students will select, in group, a city and a particular policy area with the aim to explore three sets of concerns : What are the interactions and possible tensions between policies at the city level and the legal and political national framework ? How do the relations between urban authorities and migrants play out in speciﬁc social issues (health, labor, crime, civil rights) and what are the institutions and social actors involved in that process ? Are migrants primarily seen as a threat or a source of dynamism in the metropolis' positioning on the global arena ?

Workload : Students are expected to have completed the obligatory readings, so that the workshop can be the place to engage into a discussion on the issue and applying the knowledge to the case studies. Students will be asked to actively participate and will be evaluated on this participation. Pedagogical method : 4 sessions of 3 hours. Course Description : The purpose of this workshop is to explore and discuss urban security. It will familiarize participants with issues of security and safety in a city as well as approaches on how to deal with them. It will present a human rights-based, holistic and strategic approach to urban security that has developed internationally over the last 30 years, notably through the European Forum for Urban Security. The workshop will look at the wide range of policies and actors concerned as well as the governance of security, particularly exploring the role of local authorities. It will introduce methods and tools needed to develop an evidence base and illustrate them discussing concrete examples linked to radicalization and prevention of violent extremism, as well as to the challenge of combining security and tourism. Finally, it will explore the international governance of urban security.
