SUMMERSCHOOL - MIGRATION, INTEGRATION AND ETHNIC RELATION

19/08/2013–30/08/2013, Utrecht

Migration has made European countries ethnically and culturally more diverse. Host populations have to adapt to migrants and their religion and culture, while migrants have to find their way in a new and sometimes aversive environment. Acceptance and adaptation have to be realized by migrants in spite of initial resistance, possible social exclusion and explicit political rejection by part of the host population.
This course introduces students to sociological and other social scientific theories and empirical research on international migration, reactions of the host society, and the integration of immigrants and their children. The approach is analytical and empirical and focuses on international migration, stereotyping, discrimination, political mobilization, extreme-right wing voting, ethnic segregation in social networks, and ethnic inequality in the labor market.

INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION AND HUMAN RIGHTS: CRITICAL RESEARCH AND POLICY PERSPECTIVES

17/01/2013–07/03/2013, Oxford

This seminar series questions the relationship between international migration and human rights commitments. Some migration issues are commonly framed in terms of human rights, such as the protection of refugees, family reunification and the protection of the victims of trafficking. Human rights norms and ideals are also frequently invoked to challenge states’ harsh treatment of migrants, in particular detention, albeit with limited success. Yet, in other contexts, state sovereignty appears to be given great sway, and the connections between international migration and human rights are less apparent.
