Migration and asylum governance in Southeastern Europe

MIGRATION AND ASULYM GOVERNANCE IN SOUTH-EASTERN EUROPE 

 

INSTRUCTOR: Angeliki Dimitriadi, Researcher

The course aims at providing students with an understanding of contemporary migration including refugee movement in South-eastern Europe, with a special focus on Greece. South-eastern Europe in recent years, has emerged as a critical transit corridor but also destination for mixed migratory flows. The course will look at some of the key theoretical approaches to understanding mixed migratory flows, the role of categorisations (migrant, refugee), how borders and security impact the journey of migrants, and the policies on arrival especially during the refugee crisis of 2015-2016.
