The MA Migration, Superdiversity and Policy will explore the social, economic and political effects of the new era of migration and consequent emerging superdiversity. It will analyse the multiple variables displayed by different migrants in terms of age and gender profiles, as well as immigration status, and associated rights and entitlements.It will also address the ways that social policy has been created and adapted in order to accommodate the changing fabric of urban and rural populations that have experienced high levels of inward migration. Students will critically examine the suitability and adaptability of traditional multicultural models of welfare provision that were originally based upon providing for large and geographically contained clusters of post-colonial migrants and explore a range of new approaches to service delivery focusing on good practice from across the world.
The MA Migration, Superdiversity and Policy will allow students to consider new ways that the needs of diverse populations may be met and how to overcome challenges such as lack of demographic information and details about need. The MA Migration, Superdiversity and Policy will enable students to consider approaches to meeting the needs of diverse populations in equitable ways. Migration, Superdiversity and Policy is unique in bringing together theory and practice with cutting edge research and research methods to enable students to develop applied knowledge in a rapidly evolving field.
