MAAS-533-01 Refugees & Migrants to and from the Arab World
Spring for 2005-2006
This course will cover forced and voluntary migration into and out of the Arab world, as well as internally displaced populations in the twentieth century. We will focus on reasons for population movements (conflict, environment, economics, etc.) and the results of such movements on both the migrating population, their descendants, and the host society. Taught from the perspective of anthropology, this course will focus on the human dimensions of refugee and migrant issues, changing social and cultural norms, and the influences of state and international policy on refugee and migrant populations.
