Migrants and Refugees in International Politics


This seminar explores the history, institutions, and political dynamics of international migration. We will apply an International Relations lens to help us understand the role of human mobility in global politics. The course places a special emphasis on forced migration, refugee flows, and irregular migration given the unique challenges these trends present for the international system. The overall goal is to develop substantive knowledge and analytical tools necessary for understanding the complexities of international mobility in a world of states.
