Global Migration and Human Rights - SOC297

In this unit you will consider migration from a global perspective with case studies from Australia, UK, Europe, the US, and Asia. Through the lens of human rights and social justice, you will focus on the way that population movements are shaped by global economic and political changes, as well as the impact of population movements on international and national politics. You will be introduced to the most vital practices and politics related to international migration and settlement. The course spotlights particular forms of human mobility, including asylum seekers and refugees and labour migration. You will also analyse some of the key literature associated with the sociology of international migration to consider how global migration is linked to major social transformations at the local, national and global level.
