SO/IR 338 - Spain and Morocco: Sustainable Migration and the Decolonization of International Relations
Experience has shown that people are more successful in achieving their goals when they cooperate with each other, working together, and learning from each other. In this course, students will be able to identify significant challenges and opportunities towards sustainable migration in the Western Mediterranean. Working in small teams, they will conceive and design systems and policies that can offer opportunities for sustainable migration, considering the environmental, historical and social context of the region. Fellow students will represent a variety of academic backgrounds. Together, they will be part of a diverse learning community, guided by a faculty expert. Substantive field visits, presentations by experts and connections with local NGOs will allow students to gather valuable data and information as they develop their projects; innovative technology will enable them to share their experience and findings at the end of the course; and problem- based learning will culminate in each team delivering a multi-media presentation to the group. Upon successful completion of this course, students will earn a micro-credential in Sustainability, Development and Equitable living that will demonstrate their sustainability literacy and ability to search for innovative solutions to complex problems.
