Specialisation in Globalisation, Migration and Development

The Master's specialisation in Globalisation, Migration and Development addresses the dynamics and impact of globalisation on economies, societies and resources in various parts of the world. One specific process we give special attention to is that of human mobility, linking this to external changes such as climate change, shifts in economic perspectives and notions of development, but also to the emergence of transnational identities. Dynamics in urban-rural transitions is another field we devote part of the programme too. In an overall sense the main focus is on the so-called Global South. However in this focus we also pay ample attention to interactions with the so-called Global North, including the shifting paradigms and allegiances linked to the notion of development.
