Overview

ABOUT THE MOOC : INTERNATIONAL MIGRATIONS: A GLOBAL ISSUE

ABOUT THE COURSE
The world is moving, but not all opinions and governments are willing to accept this poorly understood reality. The issue affects both states and the planet, in a process of globalization and of regionalization of migrations, and raises new questions for international relations, now including the South. This course aims at improving knowledge of the subject, addressing the key issues raised by international migration, and assessing the trends of tomorrow.

FORMAT
The MOOC lasts 7 weeks and focuses on various themes related to migration. It makes use of various types of document, such as maps, news articles, and scientific papers.

The text is in English and the videos are in French with English subtitles
