One written exam during session 10 (two hours) in French or English Course Description : This course offers an introduction to the study of migration, borders and security in the 21st Century. We will explore how the governance of migration and borders has been transformed to include a diverse range of actors away from the exclusive domain of the state. Increasingly, EU agencies, IGOs, NGOs, security professionals and religious organisations have become key players in governing mobilities. Key rationalities underpinning this governance will be explored, from managerial, to security, and humanitarian. Emerging practices for migration control often defy a territorial logic to borders, instead taking place in so-called transit and sending countries or in virtual spaces through surveillance and technology mechanisms. Thus, far from disappearing, as some scholars of globalization maintain, borders are emerging in new spaces both inside and outside the territorial state. This leads us to question the location of borders, their constitution, and their effects on liberties and fundamental rights. The course will provide students with the knowledge and concepts to think critically about how power works through borders and with what effects on states, populations and individuals in terms of their inclusion/exclusion, freedom, and mobility.

Teachers : Marie BASSI (ATER). Pedagogical format : Elective Course validation : 30% a 20-minute oral presentation (to be presented in pairs) ; - 40% written exam ; - 15% press review (in pairs) ; - 15% in-class participation. Course Description : The course will offer an introduction to migration studies in the European context from a sociological and political science perspective. Students will gain insight into the multi-level, multi-stakeholder nature of European migration and asylum governance. The course will on the one hand introduce students to important theoretical perspectives pertaining to migration studies and on the other will touch on the empirical realities of migration governance through an analysis of key actors, policies, practices and migrant experiences. Furthermore, the course will explore current discourses on the securitisation of migration and present a rival framework based on a right to mobility. Drawing on a range of sources including the inter-disciplinary migration studies scholarship, policy documents, photos and migrant narratives, students would also be expected to develop their ability to analyse discourse.
