This course is designed to engage students in a multi-disciplinary, experiential research project on migration issues through a series of set themes related to collective action. It will critically address concepts of integration, community, ethnicity, citizenship, asylum and migrants’ rights by putting them to the test through social and political mobilizations. As such, it will allow students to explore migrants’ diverse experiences as they interact with societies, cultures, and institutions with a strong emphasis on the role played by activism, such as associations for the defense of migrants’ rights, aid and support institutions, as well as local organizations. The course relies on meetings with social actors and collection of first-hand data. Research papers deal with collective action motivated by positions and identities related to migration, ethnicity, religion, anti-racism, nationalism and diversity. The focus on migration and identity is particularly relevant to developing research skills and service-learning opportunities for students.
