This course is interested in thinking critically about global migration, one of the most polarizing and relevant issues of our time. It provides an introduction to key scholarly debates in the study of migration in political science and related disciplines. Throughout the course, we will investigate the causes and consequences of modern population movements from a comparative perspective by asking: what are the social, economic, and political outcomes of migration across sending and receiving countries?The course is organized into three sections. Section I begins with an overview of the origins of current migration patterns. Section II examines the political, economic, and social impacts of migration on the receiving countries and countries of origin.

Case studies are drawn from a variety of world regions, including Europe, the United States, Africa, and Asia.
