Migration and Ethnic Tensions in Post-1945 Europe

Units: 1.5

Hours: 3-0-0

Migration has come to shape European societal and political life in vital ways. While European societies have traditionally been primarily countries of emigration, the post-war period has witnessed a massive influx of newcomers. This development has challenged traditional national identities, citizenship regimes and modes of incorporating immigrants. Based on a historic account of migration governance in various European nation states, the course will address the fundamental differences between Canada as a settler society and Europe.
