You’ll also gain an insight into the role of states in exercising their sovereign right to control their borders, and the impact their policies and laws have in closing off legal routes to migration for those desperate to flee to safety.
Examine the complex laws and policies that inform migration law with Critical International Migration Law at FutureLearn.
You’ll start by exploring how law and policies have served both to protect states’ borders, as well as create vulnerability for migrants fleeing from civil war, generalised violence, extreme poverty, and other widespread human rights violations.
You’ll then engage in a critical evaluation of the human rights of migrants and ask whether international human rights law is truly universal.
