Title: Political Economy: Migrations
Course Section Number: ECO-358-01
Department: Economics
Description: Immigration is an important current issue not only in the US, but across the globe, and past migrations have shaped history. This class will study the economic causes and consequences of migration. We will study how politics have shaped migration policy, and how policy shapes outcomes. While the economics of migration will be the primary focus, we will also consider the politics and ethics of migration policy. This class does not require intermediate economic theory or econometrics and thus it does not count towards the upper-level course requirement for the economics major.
