Migration, Forced Displacement, and Human Rights
Contemporary life is hard to imagine without migration and mobility. As an almost constant topic in our political discourse, the movement of people across borders is not one of the most policed areas of modern life. This course will introduce you to some of the topics central to understanding the global migration regime and help you to understand how it fits into the broader framework of human rights protection. We will consider various aspects of migration and mobility, including forced displacement, securitization, border controls, immobility, climate change, and queer displacement.
