About the course

This course develops knowledge and understanding of key issues and problems in contemporary research on international migration and ethnic relations (IMER). The course welcomes all students with an interest in the research subject and with some experience of academic work in the social sciences, but it does not require previous academic studies in IMER.

Essentially, the syllabus consists of seven modules on different subjects within the IMER field. Two of these will be offered each Spring semester. Hence, the modules are offered on a rotating basis and with respect to available staff. The first half of the syllabus (Section A) describes the general elements of the course structure, to which the seven modules pertain. The seven, rotating modules are presented in the second half of the syllabus (Section B).
