Content

In examining social issues and processes of profound importance in today's world, this unit focuses on international migration in a globalising world and the consequent effects of the mixing of different peoples. Migratory processes and the motivation to migrate are investigated in terms of global economic, cultural and political linkages. The unit adopts a comparative approach in understanding the impact that migration has had on western and non-western countries. It delves into and scrutinizes some of the issues arising from international migration: such as racism, the plight of refugees, our understanding of citizenship, the impact of religious diversity, interculturality and multiculturalism. In addition, the unit examines constructions of national identity and ethnicity arising from migration.
