International migration has historically impacted rural and urban communities around the world. Taking a comparative approach, this course examines community-immigrant interaction and how that influences community development and immigrant inclusion. Students read and relate theories of immigrant and community change to case studies of immigrants and communities. Students gather primary data to assess the capacity of communities to include new international immigrants. The course also examines out-migration’s effects on community development in sending communities¿in terms of their loss of human capital¿the contribution of remittances. The course further examines the overall transnationalization of such communities.
