【English-Taught Course Organized by NCCU USR and EATS】 
Migration, Human Insecurity, and Digital Platform

2021.08.04 - 2021.08.11

Migration as a global phenomenon is studied by the disciplines of political science, economics, development, sociology, anthropology, geography and demography. Different approaches corresponded by the abovementioned disciplines are contingent on how they conceptualise migrants as individuals as well as members of a collectivity, such as a household, a community or a nation-state. Studying the complex phenomenon and the implications of migration becomes even more critical for Taiwan as an island country where policy-making cares for valuation of migrant workers instead of migration patterns, and such inclination could encourage degradation from human beings to labor as commodity, fostering a sense of precarity across and within national borders.

In addition to regular lecturing, the course features: the latest empirical data and findings in a global context, sophisticated studies on female migrant workers, cutting-edge studies on ICT and migrant workers, interview with 5 fieldworkers, and research training carried out by European scholars.

The course is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students eligible for the credit* and those who intend to audit for no credit**.

*Undergraduate and postgraduate students/exchange students currently registering at National Chengchi University, National Tsing Hua University, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, and National Central University.

**Credit transference is possible, however, if admitted by your department and the curriculum section.


The course is organized by:

NCCU "Prospering Ankang, Benefiting Wenshan" USR project and European Association of Taiwan Studies(EATS)
