Governance of Migration and Diversity
The master sub-specialisation Governance of Migration and Diversity is a cooperation between Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam. For more information have a look at our website.
The programme aims to frame the historical study of migration in a wider interdisciplinary context. To achieve this, you attend courses at all participating universities, and you will be trained to contribute to the governance of migration and diversity in the context of very different organisations.
You will address questions such as:
- what are the opportunities and challenges for the management of migration?
- how have societies changed in terms of (ethnic/cultural/religious) diversity?
- how are newcomers incorporated?
- how can discrimination be prevented?
