In Migration Law and Policy, we aim to offer students the opportunity to become more familiar with the legal and policy frameworks governing migration at an international, regional and domestic levels. The module will help you understand how the United Nations, European Union, Council of Europe, and UK authorities govern migration, through a range of tools.
