This course addresses international migration as one of the most pressing and formative issues which shape both European integration, and the relationships of Europe with the rest of the world. It addresses the economic, social, political and policy aspects of international migration in the changing EU and global contexts. The course has particular resonance for students in New Zealand, a country whose society has substantially been shaped by migration to and from Europe and the rest of the world.

Learning Outcomes

The overall goal of this course is to provide an understanding of the role of international migration in Europe, set in context of the changing political economy of Europe in the post 1945 period. At the end of this course, students will understand:

1. the current role of international migration in the geopolitical economy of the EU in a globalised world
2. how conflicts and co-operation between member states have shaped the evolution of the EU
3. the underpinning processes of economic and political change in Europe, especially migration, that have affected its economy and society
4. how ongoing political tensions surrounding migration affect Europe's place in the world
