Global and national frameworks facilitate and regulate human mobility across borders. In this course you will learn about the various ways that international actors and states manage the flow of people across international borders. Focusing on how migrants are categorized, we will explore the inter-related migration regimes that facilitate easy mobility for some, and highly restricted mobility for others. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the complex global migration system and the contemporary challenges to this system. Each session will include short lectures, reading discussion, and an examination of case studies.
