- Compare migratory and urban situations and developments in the world;
- Critically analyze data sources and analyzes of migration and urbanization;
- Relate these evolutions with the social and economic transitions of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Teaching methods

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

  • Lectures provide concepts and tools, as well as basic knowledge.
  • The intermediate works make it possible to verify the assimilation by the students of the principles of critical analysis of data on migration and urbanization.
  • Intermediate work feedback, Q & A session and oral presentation session allow for staging of group work and interaction between students and with teachers.
  • The final written work assesses knowledge and skills.
COVID-19: In code yellow, the auditorium is not large enough to accommodate all the students in person. Teaching will be done in a comodal format (half of the cohort in the classroom, the other half in a distance learning format, alternating from one week to the next).
Evaluation methods

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.

Work 1: The description of the proposed comparative study, the description of migration data, and the analysis of internal migration should be posted on Moodle (20 pts - each day of delay reduces the score by 5 points).
Work 2: The description of urbanization data, and the analysis of urban transitions should be posted on Moodle (20 pts - each day of delay reduces the score by one point).
The written work on the case study between 15 and 20 pages of text (+ Tables + Figures + Appendices) is evaluated on the following criteria:
- Country overview and rationale for comparison (5)
- Describe the sources of data on internal migration in each of the two countries. (5)
- Compare internal migration in countries (10)
- Describe the sources of data on urbanization in each of the two countries. (5)
- To show the factors that differentiate the urban transition in the two selected countries. (10)
- Describe the sources of data on international migration in each of the two countries. (5)
- Analyzing international migration between these countries (10)
- Summary and conclusions (10)
- General presentation, written expression, graphics (2)
COVID-19: Whatever the mode of teaching, the mode of evaluation remains the same. 
Other information
