With over 215 million international migrants, migration is a top priority on national and international agendas. States, international organizations, NGOs and businesses face a global challenge in terms of minimizing the human costs and maximizing the benefits of migration, making it a choice rather than a necessity. At the same time, the migration experience reveals different ways in which migrants navigate transborder identities that challenge traditional definitions of citizenship and constructions of national belonging. This course will give students the ability to understand and analyze contemporary global migration flows, their causes and effects, the various ways in which migrants experience these processes, and the policies and institutions that respond to these flows across countries and regions. Our discussions will be informed by interdisciplinary academic sources, documentaries, films, news media, photographs, music, and site visits.
