Course Description

Nationalist politics and the COVID pandemic have produced policies and rhetoric that limit global mobility and impose significant harms on migrants and refugees. What does the regime of international human rights say about the current moment? What is the structure and content of human rights protections for those on the move?

This course will present multiple perspectives on mobility and human rights, and will address the most pressing issues of the day — including migrant workers, gender, racism and xenophobia, human trafficking, child migration, immigration enforcement, and forced migration. The course will provide ways to engage critically and imaginatively with these issues and consider alternative approaches to the current system.
