In an increasingly globalised world, migration and the legal issues involved is a matter of growing importance. The Masters programme in Migration and Law acknowledges the demand for a postgraduate degree which incorporates the intricate relationship between the movement of people and the legalities that surround those migrations.
This interdisciplinary degree, offered jointly by the Departments of Law and Politics, enables the student to correlate the theoretical and empirical, legal and political, aspects of the migrant experience. Those undertaking the degree will be introduced to the main theoretical and legal issues in the study of migration and be equipped with knowledge of key themes and approaches to the movement of people. At the same time, the programme emphasises the need for students to develop critical and analytical approaches to the study of migration and law.
