    Investigating the effects of globalisation and migration processes on economies, societies and resources in different parts of the world.

    Globalisation affects the lives of people all around the world. It does so in many different ways. The closing down of factories in Europe due to strong competition from developing countries providing cheaper labour, has produced a new, economically disconnected, underclass in western societies. This class’s dissatisfaction affects policy at local, national and international levels. At the same time, African migrants attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea in fragile, overfull boats, in the hope of gaining a share of Europe’s riches. The determination of these migrants indicates that there’s still a strong divide in prosperity levels between the Global North and South.

    In the Master’s specialisation in Globalisation, Migration and Development you’ll study the various dimensions and aspects of globalisation and migration. The main aim is to gain a better understanding of the changing relationships of global and local societies through the rise of social and spatial inequalities. You’ll come to learn that these are brought about by global processes, migration and mobility and the emergence of transnational identities, which may contrast with local orientations that may be part of the same multicultural societies.
