HMGK03281U AMIS: International Migration
Advanced Migration Studies
This course provides a basic understanding of the patterns of international migration. We will look into current theoretical accounts of causes and effects of different types of migration, and we will discuss the challenges and implications they give rise to for migrants as well as societies. International migration is by no means a new phenomenon; however throughout history it has taken rather different forms and taken place under different circumstances. By tracing these historical shifts and turns of international migration, the course aims to contextualize modern forms of migration and to shed light on differences and similarities between then and now. Further, processes of international migration often give rise to a host of political, legal and ethical problems, which engage international institutions as well as state actors. The course will address such problems and how they may be investigated.
