DHP D236: Migration and Governance in the Global South

Course Description

Nowhere are the impacts of human mobility more visible than in the global ‘south,' where movements of people in search of profit, protection, and passage continue to shape political, economic, and social configurations. In an era of globalization and urbanization, such mobility can be simultaneously destabilizing and empowering; challenging socio-economic and political structures in ways resulting in both marginalization and opportunities. This course is designed as an ongoing conversation covering migration dynamics and how we understand how and who controls spaces and the people occupying or moving through them.
