Course Description

The implementation of efficient migration policies lies at the core of the transformation into sustainable societies on a global scale. Yet, there is currently little agreement on a “best practice” and consequently notable disparities in migration policy across European nationstates, both at the national and local level of government, resulting in a variety of policy structures and approaches to refugee reception and housing. The course explores state-ofthe-art research on integration, segregation, and housing, with an empirical focus on the Swedish context in combination with international examples. Highlighting the current restrictive trend in migration and settlement policy, the course lays a special focus on the impact of temporality, both in terms of residence status and refugee housing. Central to the course is the discussion about the potential paradoxical outcomes inherent in when different institutional strategies are seen in the light of various sustainability aims, such as economic inclusion, family formation, gender equality, and educational possibilities (among others).
