After successful completion of this course, students can:
  1. Describe in their own words the major theories on international migration
  2. Connect and contrast the different approaches and theories covered in the lectures, and describe their strengths and weaknesses in their own words.
  3. Describe the major tendencies for each of the different sub-themes (e.g. the development of refugee flows, the ‘securization’ of migration).
  4. Apply migration theories to an empirical setting, particularly in-depth interviews.
  5. Present their work to a larger audience in a meaningful manner.
This course forms part of the track ‘Social risks in a changing world’. During the course, we will cover major theories and trends of international migration. The course covers different pertinent migration topics with a global outlook, including the impact of migration on sending and receiving societies, the dynamics of labour migration, refugee flows, lifestyle migration and the nexus between migration, security and the state. The course also includes lab sessions which are organized around applying theories to an empirical setting, more specifically qualitative research (in-depth interviews).

The final grade for this course consists of two parts, namely a written exam (80%, individual grade) at the end of the course, and a group assignment (20%, group grade) involving a small qualitative research project on a migration topic.
