Global migrations and inequalities


The issue of international migration is, more than ever, the focus of media and government attention. Preconceived ideas and simplistic presentations regularly give rise to controversies. Research has for several decades helped to better understand the social, economic, political, geopolitical, and cultural factors that explain these international migrations but this accumulated knowledge does not always successfully shape the public debate on the subject. By studying this literature from a multidisciplinary perspective (history, sociology, economics, anthropology, political science, geography), this class proposes to examine the deep historical roots, the transnational and sociological diversity, the economic and political consequences of these international mobilities.
