Comparative Migration Policy
Full course description
The final course in this specialisation deals with migration governance, emigration, immigration, and integration policy and migration policies more generally. Migration policy is a hot topic in most developed countries. It is the talk of political parties and a subject in new elections. The course covers global migration governance issues as well as understanding policy coherence for migration and development. Additionally, we explore migration entry and integration policies for different types of migrants across different receiving countries. A special comparative focus is made. The sending policies of origin countries are also studied: do they encourage or discourage migrations and from which groups? The last section of this course also focuses on getting students ready to enter the labour market with a week devoted to labour market entry.
The goal of this course is to make students familiar with different types of migration policies and the causes and consequences of these policies as well as global migration governance.
