Developing a Critical Pedagogy of Migration Studies

Migration as a taught subject is entrenched in social and political debates, with the classroom firmly framed as a site of committed social and political encounter. That means teaching migration through the prism of critical pedagogy is a political and ethical necessity.

This book invites readers to examine their own relationships with migration, ethics, politics and power. It encourages teachers, students and practitioners to think critically about their position in relation to the knowledge they both bring and gain.

With pedagogical features that provide space for reflection and discussion, this is a transformative resource in reshaping how we teach and learn about migration.

“A timely book which grapples with the complexity of teaching migration in the current political climate. A vital read for scholars across different disciplines engaged in teaching migration topics.” Kelly Devenney, University of York
