Mobilities and Global Inequalities (004IDA)
30 credits, Level 6
Migration is increasingly recognised as a significant component of global economic, social and environmental development. This module offers the opportunity to understand how migration and development are related, and the mutual effects they have on one another. The module is divided in three sections. The first section introduces the main theories on migration and the key debates on the migration-development nexus. The second section addresses the main international institutional responses to global migration, including development and humanitarian policy interventions. Finally, the third part discusses key components of the migration-development debate, including remittances, brain circulation, gender, transnationalism.
