Welcome to week 3

We hope that last week helped you better understand the key issues regarding the maritime arrivals to Europe that have received wide attention in the global media in recent years, as well as the longer-term policy responses on the part of the European Union.

In the third and last week of our course, we move away from Europe and the Mediterranean region to consider some of the key cases and challenges of contemporary migration in other parts of the world, from migrant agricultural labour and political approaches to irregular migration in the United States to the gender dimensions of labour migration in Latin America; from the ongoing refugee crisis of the Rohingya people from Myanmar to Australia’s so-called ‘Pacific Solution’ policy of relocating asylum seekers to detention and process centres on islands in the Pacific Ocean.
