Minor Global Migration

Global Migration

The minor Global Migration provides students with fundamental understanding of processes, causes and impacts of migration. It helps students to critically assess public debates and policies on migration and integration, using insights from different theories and disciplines. Through interactive lectures, seminars, field visits and interviews with migrants and practitioners, the Minor helps students to analyse the migration processes. The Minor concludes with a ‘migration lab’ in which students are confronted with real-life policy challenges and use their knowledge to think about possible solutions.
