GER 262 REFUGEES IN EUROPE: GERMANY
Vast numbers of refugees have made their way to Europe, especially to Germany in recent years. Focusing on the case of Germany, the course explores the different routes taken by the refugees; abuse, exploitation, and human rights violations; refugee and asylum policies; public debates about Muslims and Islam; Islamophobia; the work of local NGOs; special challenges faced by women and LGBTQ refugees; and depictions of refugees in the media. Refugees and refugee organizations will join us live from Germany via videoconferencing.
Students participating in the foreign language section will receive one additional credit hour, pass/not passed marking.
