Migration and Extremism in the Mediterranean

when 4 July 2022 - 8 July 2022
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2 EC
fee EUR 300

The course offers an introduction to the theme of international migration in the Mediterranean, by providing students with flexible lenses to analyze current developments in the governance of human mobility. Students will be introduced to the international background of increased migratory trends, and the role of state and non-state actors in border controls, the irregular crossings of borders and the securitization of migration in the Mediterranean area. Students will also get an understanding of the connections between international migration and different forms of extremism, particularly in the post 9/11 context and the perceived “clash of civilizations”. In this light, the course will offer an analysis of current developments in the management of migration crises at global and regional levels. The course will particularly look at the crucial case study of regional instabilities and forced migration in the Mediterranean and at the connections between climate change, conflicts and forced-migration.

Target group

The Barcelona Summer School of the Mediterranean and the Middle East is a joint initiative of IBEI and Blanquerna - Universitat Ramón Llull. The School consists of two separate but complementary parts. The first part will consist of a number of short courses on the politics and international relations of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, taught by experts of international repute. The second part will include interactive roundtables focused on the various policy challenges the two regions face. This unique dual structure will enable the programme to cater to the needs of students and practitioners. The program is designed for graduate students and all those who have an interest in advanced knowledge of the mediterranean and middle east issues. The objective is to offer different short courses on significant topics, taught by scholars and experts of international prestige.
