This course interrogates the current ‘refugee crisis’; and as such it sets out by scrutinizing to what extent this is actually an accurate rubric in the first place. In contrast to much of the current debate, this means that the course does not perceive of the refugees – as in their numbers or in the financing of their reception in for instance the EU – as the primary cause of the crisis. Rather, the focus will be placed on a set of factors, dynamics and causes that both help us explain why so many people around the world are fleeing today and why the European Union and OECD countries at large want to minimize their responsibility.
