Migration, Displacement & Refugees
Students will be introduced to the major causes of contemporary population displacement and the consequences of displacement for social, cultural, political, and economic development. Courses will introduce students to global processes contributing to displacement, such as uneven development, colonialism and neocolonialism, urbanization, natural and man-made disasters, and political instability and violence. Students will also become familiarized with the impacts of these processes on forced and voluntary displacement both within and beyond national borders. Additionally, students will explore the intersections between population displacement and other international challenges including: human rights, citizenship and statelessness, political conflict and violence, economic development and urbanization, cultural rights and sovereignty, and health and mental health problems in (im)migrant and refugee communities.
