The module consists of two distinct parts:
The first part of the module will focus on the theoretical discussion concerning migration flows. This will be further separated into A) classical migration theories, where the question “why do people migrate” will be answered by different perspectives. B) Forced migration theories, where the refugee vs. migrant debate will be presented, as well as an understanding of population movement in the context of extremely constraint options. C) Given the knowledge acquired from the previous theoretical discussions, the recent refugee crisis will be approached in order to assess its unique but also reoccurring characteristics.
The latter part of the module will emphasize on the rise of nationalism in Europe and the integration strategies and practice within this context.
