POl 386 Global Migration & Refugees

3 Credit(s)
Global migration is arguably the most pressing political issue of our time. This course explores the drivers, dimensions, and consequences of global mobility with a focus on current migrant and refugee crises. Why do people move across borders? Where are global migration flows occurring today and how is global climate change accelerating them? What is the difference between labor migrants and refugees?  How is migration affecting politics in both sending and receiving countries?  In exploring these questions, the course will also discuss the political, ethical, and moral challenges of migration governance. Three lecture hours per week.
