Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Migration has been, is and will continue to be an important issue Austria and the EU.
This course digs into the political and policy process to explore the dynamics of migration and mobility in the EU: by thinking about different types of migration; exploring policy responses; and analysing the EU framework within which national policies in Austria and in other EU member states are now located.

Specific questions we will deal with in this course are:
• How, why, when and in what form have EU governance structures in the field of migration and mobility emerged and developed?
• How does Austria and other EU member states seek to shape and influence EU policy, but, also, how has EU action affected policy in member states?
• How has growing EU competence for migration contributed to both the politicisation of migration in Austria and other nation states and to the growth of Euroscepticism?

At the end of this course particpants will be able to assess how, why, when and with what effects the EU now plays a role in migration and mobility and the extent to which this changes the ways in which debate occurs, decisions are made and policies are implemented.

This course is designed to be interactive. To facilitate a lively exchange among participants during class and to guarantee a high learning outcome, for each teaching day a list of readings is assigned. Readings are usually book chapters, or journal articles. Short summaries of each of these readings have to be prepared by the participants of this course. The course also requires students to give a short presentation, and to constructively comment on presentations of their peers, and to deliver an essay.

By the end of this course, students are expected to:
• Demonstrate independent and critical understanding of the the issue of migration and mobility, its causes and its effects on liberal democracy and European societies
• Demonstrate a clear understanding of the most important aspects of political responses to and perception about international migration in Austria and the EU
• Demonstrate appropriate cognitive, communicative and transferable skills, including understanding complex concepts and theories, exercising critical judgement, problem-solving skills; making effective oral and written presentations, utilizing specialist primary and secondary sources, and deepening the capacity for independent learning
• Write essays/opinion pieces with a coherent argument that are referenced in accordance with established academic practice
THE SEMINAR WILL BE HELD DIGITALLY via LIVE-VIDEOCONFERENCING. We will use the tool Collaborate. You can find instructions here: https://wiki.univie.ac.at/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=101484831
