The Certificate of Advanced Studies on Migration and Diversity analyzes changes in social structures and cultural processes owing to migration.
Migration results in diversification that boots enrichment and creates social challenges. The CAS teaches the skills to engage with others and create solutions that turn problems into opportunities. It explores conditions for larger social inclusion.
Migration streams affect all aspects of social life (public institutions, policy-making, businesses, media, health services, religion and ethics, gender and family). This CAS analyzes resulting changes in social structures and cultural processes within nation-states and globally.
The modules cover structural and cultural aspects of migration, integration and diversity including political participation, social mobility and market inequality, inclusion and belonging, governance of international migration, prejudice and stereotyping, refugee processes, policies, health and social needs.
