Social Sciences




Explore the effects of human mobility on local communities, global politics, and transnational economies; learn from discussions with asylum seekers, Syrian refugees, Moroccan immigrants in Europe, and the local communities impacted by migration. This program examines the factors driving internal and international migration in Morocco and elsewhere in North and sub-Saharan Africa. You will consider how human mobility is shaped by religion, security, youth culture, desertification, poverty, and other pressing issues and how mobility engenders transnational art and multilayered identities. You will contextualize the social and psychological impact of migration through discussions with Moroccan residents in the Netherlands.
