Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

With the current global systems increasingly attracting more and more attention, the role of migration in this dynamic process is significantly visible. As international social scientists, understanding and interacting within these critical systems' framework increases knowledge and provides various avenues to deal with these global systems' challenges practically.
This course introduces human migration, including theories of migration, historical and geographic patterns, migration policies and outcomes or consequences of migration. It will also cover the policy and governance structures available to deal with migration management from some developing countries, specifically from west Africa.

Aim:
The aim of the course is to explain and examine the processes underlying contemporary migration from a theory-guided comparative approach. Having completed this course, students should:
be able to apply their understanding of key concepts and dimensions of human migration to current research and approaches to international migration management
be able to understand migration policies and how they are related to global power relations
be able to contribute to the debate on migration and development, and migration governance.
