Course Description:

This course will explore the political economy of migration and security, drawing on literature from both political science and economics.  The purpose of this course it to familiarize students with a selection of current, policy-relevant research on migration, focusing primarily on international migration and its implications for national security.  Topics will include immigration and integration, strategic use of migration in foreign policy and war, links between mixed migration and transnational crime, and coordination across countries on asylum, borders and security. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the strategic incentives faced by migrants, policy makers and parties to war and linking these to realized policies and outcomes.
