International Relations and Forced Migration

Keri Myrick

Since 1950, refugee populations worldwide have continued to swell at an alarming rate due to political and religious persecution, civil and regional military conflict, and, more recently, climate change. As of the end of 2020, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) reported 82.4 million forcibly displaced individuals worldwide, including some 21 million refugees under the UNHCR's mandate. While root causes of forced migration vary, they each represent at some level the failure of international relations. This course will explore, via case studies, incidents of forced migration that have shaped the international community's responses to asylum-seekers, refugees, and other forms of involuntary migrants, including "climigrants."

This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
