HON 246 - HNR HUM Refugees in Global and Regional Context (PS 246, INT 246)

4.00 credits.
(Humanities Core Course)
*A Guided Writing and Research Course.
This course will offer the intellectual, analytical and research tools to understand the history and complexities of forced migration and refugeehood and their centrality to political, social and economic change in global, national and regional contexts. It will introduce students with an interest in local, national, as well as international career opportunities in human rights, development, refugees, and migration, as well as develop an understanding of various policy responses from around the world, including our regional context in Lancaster, PA, using extensive partnership with the Church World Services. During the course, we will analyze the global responses to refugees by examining the response from the United States, European Union, and Turkey. We will pay particular attention to the driving forces behind the record-breaking numbers of refugees around the world, such as civil wars, risk of genocide, organized crime, terrorism, ecological disasters, and lack of human security. Signature Learning Experience: Community-Based Learning. Offered Summer semester.
