This module explores the social, economic and cultural processes involved in international migration. It looks at global patterns of migration, whilst considering the different ways in which migration has been studied and theorised. Students are introduced to a number of key concepts and debates in contemporary migration research, as well as a range of empirical examples. They are encouraged to develop an understanding of different kinds of migration, whilst appreciating the limits and problems of some established categories, including 'undocumented migration', and the distinction between 'economic' and 'forced' migration. The module considers international migration in relation to sending as well as receiving country contexts, and in terms of its relationship to development, economic and socio-cultural transformations, and migration policy.
