This special topics course explores the gender and racial underpinnings of contemporary immigration politics in the Global North. By focusing on a set of recent issues and debates such as the refugee/migrant crisis, human trafficking, femicide in borderlands and body/face covering bans in France, we will analyze how seemingly neutral laws and policies, and the migration experience itself, impact men and women and various racial/ethnic groups differently.
