  • Migration
  • Urban Policy
  • Global Studies
This course examines the local impacts of global migration—the cities and urban spaces around the world where tens of thousands of migrants arrive each day in search of opportunity. Through case studies, literature, invited guests and film, we explore the intersection of (im)migration, urbanization and integration in the modern Gateway City. Students are introduced to urban policy, planning, design and development initiatives which seek to integrate migrants into the life of the city. We also consider the impact in places where policy and planning either ignore or actively exclude migrants from city spaces or services. Students develop a place-based analysis of a specific integration initiative in a Gateway City of their choosing and present portions of their findings in the final two sessions of the semester. (Formerly known as Urban Spaces and Migrations)
