Module overview

The analytical focus of this course is on the nexus between international migration and development. It first addresses a theoretical and historical overview of such nexus. Over the following sessions, it moves to a critical discussion of selected topics such as the regulation of diverse forms of mobility in border zones; the impact of individual and collective strategies to development; the increasing importance of urban spaces as catalysts for displacements, exchanges, and innovation, and the implications of the feminization of migrant flows for socio-economic and human development.
