FMS 402 (JTR 110, Wills)
Group Regional Research Project & Final Research Paper assignments:
In groups of 3-4 students, course participants will explore the causes and types of forced migration in a particular region (or country) and the frameworks, achievements, and/or challenges for the protection of forced migrants in that area. Student teams will also be expected to identify one or two durable solutions to resolve issues of displacement in the region. As a group, students will develop and hone their empirical question, by conducting a meaningful content analysis of media reports, legal debates, academic arguments, or official discussions at the UN General Assembly on regional issues related to course topics. Student Groups will present their findings in class via oral presentations.
Each student in the group should choose a specific topic within the broader group project to research more deeply. Ultimately, each student will further develop their research on that topic to write a 15-page final research paper.
