About

The Migration, Superdiversity and Policy programme offered by the University of Birmingham will explore the social, economic and political impacts of international migration and examine current, proposed and ideal approaches to welfare provision in the era of superdiversity. 

Overview

The Migration, Superdiversity and Policy programme offered by the University of Birmingham will explore data to help map superdiverse populations and examine the rights and entitlements of migrants in different societies. 

Taking an applied approach, the programme will help studens to learn how to access data sources and undertake research in ways that can increase understanding of the nature of superdiversity and the needs of superdiverse communities. 

You will explore the social, economic and political impacts of international migration and examine current, proposed and ideal approaches to welfare provision in the era of superdiversity.

You will address the ways that policy has been adapted and created in order to accommodate the changing social fabric in urban and rural areas. You will critically examine the suitability and adaptability of different models of welfare provision, to explore critiques of multiculturalism and to develop an understanding of postmulticultural modes of service delivery. 

You will be enabled to consider approaches to meeting the needs of diverse populations in equitable ways. Migration, Superdiversity and Policy is unique in bringing together theory and practice with cutting edge research and research methods to enable students to develop applied knowledge in a rapidly evolving field.
