Migration is a crucial and dynamic part of human life. International migration ranges from voluntary migration of highly qualified labor migrants as Expats to forced migration of vulnerable groups. In any case, migration leads to increasing diversity at the places where migrants arrive. This diversity relates to cultural, language, gender and other dimensions. It also has impacts on the rights and legal status and citizenship of migrants. The lecture deals with these aspects and presents conceptual reflections as well as empirical findings.
