This class explores the experiences of contemporary migrant populations, including immigrants, refugees, displaced persons and individuals involved in human trafficking. Students will critically analyze the social, political and economic forces that influence trans-border movements, the impacts of immigration on families, communities and economies in origin and destination societies, as well as the influence of voluntary and involuntary migration on individual livelihoods, health, and human rights. Students will develop an understanding of immigrants as central to globalization processes and the societal challenges and contributions that accompany mass migration.
