Module content
In the lecture and workshops students will address questions on the two key terms of reference for the Erasmus Mundus Master program EMMIR: migration and intercultural relations. Migration is understood here as encompassing all forms of international migration, voluntary as well as forced movements. Internal displacement, prominent especially in African contexts, will also be addressed. Intercultural relations include not only communication and other forms of interaction between the majority and resident minorities / diasporic communities within nation states but also interethnic relations in the (inter-) national arena and beyond nation states - including multinational settings and concepts such as multiculturalism or cosmopolitanism . The four program foci are: Gender, Development, Representation and Education. Students will have the benefits and challenge of an international learner group. In addition, students will attend one course in an area of ​​Academic English (presentation skills, publishing, writing).
