‘Demographics, Migration Crisis in Trump-Era’ is a two week summer course that examines trends in global demographics, migration and migration policies today from interdisciplinary perspectives. Shifts in demographic structures either by migration or by aging will bring challenges for human rights, social inequality, public welfare policies and cultural dilemma’s, clashing between liberal democracy and nationalism/populism (Trumpism). The course will address academic research and debates as well as policy’s dilemma’s, which are framed in e.g. pro versus anti-globalization, human rights versus nationalism or even populims and the West against the Muslim world.
