Ecology, Migration and Tolerance: Limits to cooperation?Organization logo: Leiden University

Over deze minor

Many of the most acute problems we face today are global: they transcend national boundaries, they put the future of society and even humanity at peril, and they can only be addressed through international cooperation. However, what can international cooperation deliver? Is it possible to come together and address in a constructive manner looming ecological crises, concerns about democracy and social justice, and the tensions arising from migration and diversity.

This multidisciplinary minor offers an International Studies approach to this set of contemporary challenges. In practice this means you will encounter different disciplinary perspectives across the four courses and will be taught by lecturers from diverse academic backgrounds. The minor will allow you to discuss the limits to cooperation and political mobilisation on the topics of global governance, political ecology, migration, religion, and social justice. Through the readings and lectures you will be exposed to responses to global challenges from both a top-down institutional level (the United Nations) and a bottom-up grassroots approach (social movements). Assignments across the four courses will offer students the opportunity to conduct case study work and explore local and regional perspectives.
