Learn about how migration has shaped cities around the world and the particular issues that migrants face in urban contexts with the Migration and Cities course of the European University Institute (EUI).


Discover the fundamental links between migration and cities

Migration has always played a fundamental role in urban development. Without some form of inward migration – be it international or internal – cities would not develop or grow.

On this course you will explore the relationship between migration and cities both across history and in the world today. For example, you’ll learn about the influence of migration on the rise of modern, industrial cities in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. You will also look at a range of contemporary issues at the urban scale, such as employment, settlement, public space and local policy.

What will you achieve?

By the end of the course, you‘ll be able to...

  • Explore current debates on how migration has shaped cities historically
  • Investigate key issues regarding migrants in cities today
  • Assess the possibilities and limits of local policy in facilitating the integration of migrants in cities
  • Reflect on the ways in which migrants' networks between different cities around the world encourage a rethinking of international migration
