AMIS: Migration and Societies - Practices and Arenas
The course provides an understanding of the key concepts and policy issues that relates to questions of migration and societies, such as immigrant settlement, multiculturalism, minority/majority relations and processes of categorization.
The course is case-based and focusses on three arenas for interaction between migrant and host society, namely education, labor market and residential areas.
During the course, students will plan and carry out a field study related to the topic of the course, preferably in one of the arenas the course touches upon. The field study will form the basis for a project that may be undertaken by groups (max 5) or individual students. This will result in a written report that serves as the students’ final product, on the basis of which their performance will be assessed.
