Media coverage often covers the topic in Manichean terms : migrants are either victims or threats. Migration is considered as a major issue for global governance and a key feature of contemporary cities. This course provides you with the tools to answer the key questions raised by international mobility and useful concepts based on cutting-edge social science research and reliable data sources.
What does migration tell us about the relationship between states, global markets, and diverse societies ? The course examines how and why states regulate the movement of people, investigates the transnational dynamics set by international migrants and how they change home and host societies and addresses the issue of forced migration and refugee camps.
