CREDIT HOURS: 3
Some observers propose that we are living in an “age of migration” because there are now more international migrants than ever before. Millions of people also migrate within their own countries from rural to urban areas in search of employment and other opportunities that cities are perceived to offer. Migration as a social phenomenon is inextricably linked to important global concerns such as wealth disparities both between countries and within countries between social classes, as certain groups of people are displaced or dispossessed from land-based livelihoods. Global migration also involves major gender and ethnic inequalities, human rights issues, and produces differential access to citizenship.
