Course Description This is a seminar course on the social structure of migration–the movement of people from place to place–and its developmental consequences. The readings are organized by topic and include examples drawn from many countries, in order to highlight the commonality of migration processes across societies as well as specific societal differences that reflect national differences in social institutions, regional variations in economic development, etc. Papers concerned both with internal migration and international migration are included; as we will see, the apparent distinction between these two forms of migration–the presence of institutional barriers with respect to international migration and the supposed absence of such barriers with respect to internal migration–breaks down in societies that impose institutional constraints on internal migration: China, the former Soviet Union, and apartheid-era South Africa, among others.
