Module overview

The material covers ideas from many disciplines. Migration represents movement across space, influencing and changing the environments of both the origin and destination locations (geography). It is both affected by and affects population structures and compositions (demography). Migration is often caused by individual or household decisions for gains in economic welfare (economics), whilst being encouraged, controlled, or restricted by states (political science). Migration involves motives for leaving and adaptation to new societies (social psychology), and affects social and cultural systems (sociology). These issues (and more) are included in the topics and discussions contained in this course.
