In this module we examine the consequences of migration in an urban context. We look at images, pictures, food, architecture and all other traces of migration in the city. We will compare and contrast these to other locations and to the literature and theories discussed in the lectures. Various excursions in and around The Hague will be used to illustrate the theories and concepts explained in the lectures. Guest speakers from different backgrounds will give insights in practical aspects and consequences of migration.
