Questions of immigration, ethnic diversity and the integration of migrants and their descendants have become key topics of social interest in almost all European countries in recent decades. They also pose many challenges for the social sciences. This lecture deals with important subphenomena and basic problems of this topic area. Next to substantive matters, theoretical and methodological developments of current research will be discussed. Altogether, a broad spectrum of topics is covered, ranging from the causes of migration, through various dimensions of integration (cognitive-cultural, structural, social and emotional integration), to the general connection between ethnic diversity and societal context.

Description:
The sociology of migration is undoubtedly one of the sociological areas that have experienced a noticeable upswing in recent years. In the course “Ethnic inequality: Comparative approach” we cover a broad array of topics in migration sociology. We first carry out the sociological examination of the causes of migration and address the question what immigrant selectivity means for their successful integration into host countries. The second part of the course deals with the consequences of migration for immigrants themselves and for their incorporation in new societies. We particularly explore cultural, structural, social and identivicational aspects of immigrants' integration. In the third part of the course we look into the reations of the native-born majority population towards newcomers and the general consequences of immigration for the host society. The breadth of the topics covered by the course reflects the heterogeneity of the field, both theoretically, methodologically and empirically. The overarching aim of the lecture is to provide expertise in the field of migration sociology, paying attention not only to the description of main developments but also to the theoretical understanding and critical assessment of the sophisticated empirical evidence.
  1. Introduction into the topic. Recent history of migration in Europe
  2. Migration theories. Immigrant selectivity
  3. Definition and dimension of integration. Classic and new theoretical approaches

  6. Cultural dimension of integration: Language acqusition
  7. Structural dimension of integration: Immigrants and their descendants in the education system

Description:
The Dynamics of European Integration

Research on European integration distinguishes between the causes and consequences of the institutional choices for European integration. In the current debate, proponents of liberal intergovernmentalism argue that the political leaders of the member states are able to design an effective institutional framework for EU policy-making, while postfunctionalists contend that an institutional mismatch exists between supranational form and function. This lecture introduces into the theories and methodologies about the causes and consequences of the institutional choices and their implications for EU policy-making. To understand research on the dynamics of European integration, students should have advanced knowledge in analytical theory and methodology. They should meet three conditions:
  • Firstly, knowledge of the basic literature in international relations and comparative politics (lectures in BA);
  • Secondly, methodological knowledge of research design and statistics (respective courses in political science or other disciplines);
  • Thirdly, high interest in cutting-edge political science research (published in international leading scholarly journals).
As an accompanying reading to the readings published in the syllabus, I recommend reading the book by Simon Hix and Bjorn Hoyland. 2011. The Political System of the European Union, Basingstoke: Palgrave. Furthermore, basic information can be found at https://europa.eu/european-union/abouteu_en. The lecture is interactive, which means that participants can ask questions. To foster interactive communication, the slides of the lecture will be made available before the session.
Aims:
  • Ability to understand and select political science studies on European integration and the European Union;
  • Excellent knowledge of the state of research on the main approaches to European integration and the European Union;
  • Scientific understanding of the functioning of the integration steps and the political system of the European Union;
  • Theoretical and methodological knowledge for the study of European integration and the European Union;
  • Applying skills and knowledge to related or future problems of European integration and the European Union.

Description:
Statistical skills are essential for students of any empirically oriented social science. In the study of political science an understanding of statistical data analysis is necessary not only for conducting analysis, but also for understanding a significant proportion of the empirical political science literature. This course is an introduction to data analysis in empirical political research. We will introduce the basic methods of data analysis using the statistical software package Stata. The course aims to provide students with an appreciation of what good statistical analysis can achieve, how to use statistical methods appropriately and with confidence and how to interpret the results produced by those methods clearly and correctly.

Description:
This course is designed to introduce beginning students to the central topics and terms in current (English) linguistics. We will discuss the sound system of English, how words are formed and modified in English and how words are combined to form sentences. Or in technical terms: We will cover: phonetics, phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax, major (syntactic) contrasts between English and German and occasionally glimpse at the historical development of English. We will also occasionally look at how these topics are relevant in language acquisition, language storage and processing in the human brain, and language variation over time and in society.
Note that this class will be taught as a flipped classroom, which means that you prepare sessions individually by reading the textbook chapter and watching video clips online BEFORE the sessions. In class your questions will be answered and tasks and problem cases solved. You’ll learn more about this in the first session.

Description:
Have you heard about the state of crisis we seem to be in lately? From the pandemic to political conflicts, financial challenges, social media, and climate change: crises have permeated important realms of our lives today. This course aims to illuminate different notions of “crisis” and analyse its causes and effects on culture, finance, literature, and politics. We will look beyond the buzzword, define the concept of the term, and develop an understanding of approaches by cultural theorists, writers, and experts in their respective fields.

Designed as a joint virtual project with the Mid Sweden University, students from Mannheim and Sundsvall will work together to address crisis and its ramifications on a weekly basis. Furthermore, the course will be expanded by six guest instructors from Literature, Linguistics, Economics, and History to facilitate a thorough analysis of the many different facets of crisis. In our international and interdisciplinary classroom, students are encouraged to take new perspectives on their subject and discuss crisis as a global phenomenon in an intercultural setting.

We are sharing our data every day through social media, online banking, online shopping, etc. with the hope that our rights are safeguarded. The main goal of this Course is the familiarization of students with the EU and international legal frameworks on the protection of personal data, and its significance as a fundamental right. This area of law is based on the requirement to ensure control over personal data, and to protect them from unauthorized disclosure, online abuse, identity theft, etc. During this course, students will learn about the EU’s and the Council of Europe’s (CoE) legal rules on this matter, including an explanation of major Courts’ rulings and the most important jurisprudence.
Throughout the course, there will be a focus on:
 -  Introduction to the EU legal and institutional framework
 - The right to personal data protection and its limitations
 - The most important legal principles and rules of the EU data protection law (lawfulness, fairness, transparency, security, etc.)
 - The rights of data subjects and their enforcement (remedies, liability, compensation)
 - International flow of personal data (data transfer to third countries)
– Cases before the Data Protection Authorities and Court of Justice of the European Union (case law);

Next to the results of the final written exam, the results from seminar papers will also contribute to the overall grade for this course.

Registration procedure:
International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is a body of rules that seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict. IHL protects those who are not participating in hostilities, and those who are no longer participating in hostilities. This body of law imposes limits on the methods and means of warfare. IHL forms part of public international law and is largely based on treaties and rules of customary international law. 
In this course the development as well as the basic concepts of IHL will be explored. Students will be introduced to the most important documents governing armed conflict, learn how to apply these and will consider the challenges posed to the application of IHL in armed conflicts. A large part of the course will focus on the new developments in IHL including the emergence of new forms of armed conflicts and the development and use of new technologies in armed conflict.

Assessment
Assessment for this course will consist of one writing assignment and one open book exam.
