This unit will focus on mobilities, migrations and political asylum in the European Union. It will consider both intra-EU migrations and migrations to and from the EU and associated countries, as well as the increasingly vexed issue of political asylum. The unit will study the impacts of skilled mobilities, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, culture, language and religion in migration patterns, as well as the impact of internal and external geopolitical tensions such as East/West divides, wars and terrorism.
