In examining social issues and processes of profound importance in today's world, this unit focuses on 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 explores constructions of identity and ethnicity arising from migration, and scrutinizes some of the issues arising from it: such as racism, 'ethnic cleansing', interculturality and multiculturalism. It concludes with an examination of the impact of migration, multiculturalism and racism on nation and citizenship.
