This is a course in the theory of international migration and development without a textbook. Instead it is conceived to include a range of texts, tackling a series of conceptual, normative and empirical issues related to migration-development nexus, ranging from classical development arguments to contemporary scholarship. The main aim of this course is to unravell the most important actors and factors driving development in migrants’ home society.

The course tackles the convergence of globalization and technology and its impact on politics and political participation.
