Borders, Migration & Globalization

Borders, migration, and globalization are terms invoked by the media and in everyday conversations; but it is important to dig deeply to understand what these terms mean. This course studies policies and the discourse around border security; the cause and effects of international migration; the origin of the term “globalization” and the theories associated with these phenomena. The course accounts for the social context that explains the rise of these ideas, as well as the push-back against what people see as the negative consequences of international migration and trade.
