Learning outcomes

The student is familiar with various approaches to human mobility with a focus on forced displacement. In addition to actively participating in the lectures, the student develops analytical skills through a variety of participative methods both inside and outside the classroom.

General description

This module examines intersectional approaches to human mobility in peace and conflict research. Violent conflicts, ethnic and religious discrimination and human rights abuses produce forced displacement, understood as both refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). The perspectives of states, international organizations, civil society organizations as well as migrants themselves in responding to these crisis situations are considered. During the course these perspectives are approached through three types of intersections. These include a) intersections between theoretical approaches to the question of forced migration, b) those between theory and practice, and c) those between different empirical situations of forced migration.
