The module Global Flows: Migration is taught by the German researcher Dr. Barbara Dietz. Currently she is the Head of the Department of Migration and Integration at the Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS), Regensburg, and conducts a series of international research projects. Dr. Dietz holds a Master degree in Economics from the University of Munich and obtained her doctoral degree at the University of Bremen. The Module covers varying forms of migration in different areas. However, it does not only address current or recent population movements. Starting in the 18th century, forced and voluntary migration have represented an important aspect of the world’s economic, cultural, and political development. The emergence of world markets for capital and goods would not have been possible without the creation of a world market for labor. In socio-cultural terms, the shape of many societies has been influenced by the presence of immigrants from other parts of the world. In order to understand the current development in regards to this fascinating subject, the module offers the opportunity to explore the current processes in-depth while simultaneously putting them in a historical context.
