About the course
This course seeks to deepen the understanding of the main theoretical perspectives relating to international migration and integration with a special focus on Europe. An important focus is how different historical trajectories have influenced contemporary approaches to migration within Europe; as well as how contemporary national and EU politics meets the challenges of migration. A broad spectrum of various types of migration will be discussed. The legal systems and the main governing bodies of migration will be discussed in a comparative European perspective. The students will learn to apply theories of migration on empirical case studies from different parts of Europe.
The special prerequisite for this course is IMER 1.
