Are you wondering how immigration became such a big topic in Europe and North America? Since the 1960s, a lot has changed. We’ll dive into this together in this course!

Here’s what you’ll get from this course:
1. Learn the Story of Immigration: We’ll explore why people moved to Western countries since the 1960s, how governments reacted, and the conflicts that arose.
2. Engage in Practical Learning: You’ll complete your own research project. It’s a great chance to practice digging up sources and putting together a strong argument based on this evidence.
3. Join the Conversation: Every week, we’ll have online lectures and lively discussions. Catch the lectures every Tuesday at 1:30 pm GMT, and join our live discussion sessions on Thursdays at the same time. Got questions? Email them, post on the course forum, or ask during the live sessions!
4. Grow Your Skills: By the end, you’ll be great at understanding why people move, how countries respond, and the effects on society and politics. Plus, you’ll get acquainted with research!

How We’ll Do It:
– Weekly online lectures to watch at your own pace.
– Engaging live discussions to share your thoughts and hear from others.
– A research project forming the capstone of your newfound knowledge.
