ECON 3387 Social, Political, and Economic Analysis of Immigration Issues in Germany (Summer: 4 )

Course Description

Germany has been one of the countries most severely affected by the migration crisis. Germany's immigration policy and approach to the refugee crisis also stood out from the rest of Europe, as well as the rest of the world. Angela Merkel defended her "open door" approach fiercely. However, increasing pressure in Europe and within Germany is stalling and potentially derailing the proposed German immigration policies. Immigration policy is a very complex and multi-faceted topic, which many people fail to understand. It has a humanitarian dimension, but also widespread economic effects. This course will study a subset of these, in the context (but not limited to) economic development and growth. Studying the social, political and economic impact of immigration issues in Europe will be at the core of the program.
