Middle East: Minorities and Migration

This course gives an overview of minorities in the Middle East by illuminating the historical development and contemporary situation of a number of minority groups.

The course also treats the reasons behind and the consequences of the extensive migration of minorities from the Middle East to Europe. Within this framework, the course deals with previous research about migration, religion, ethnicity and the relation between state and society, as well as theoretical discourses about diaspora and identity.
