The CGGE Migration module examines regional and global patterns of labor migration and the experiences of migrants in different places. The conceptual framework introduces some of the theories and ideas used by geographers to analyze migration, emphasizing concepts such as push and pull factors, selectivity, and social structures. Each case study explores a geographic question about migration in the context of a particular region or country. The module's collaborative projects offer opportunities for students to discuss the case studies and engage in geographic learning with students in different countries.
The CGGE Migration module's collaborative projects are designed to connect geography classes in different countries for online learning and are adaptable to a wide range of learning contexts.

If you wish to find a collaborator in a different region or country, you will first need to register your collaboration (no charge) with the AAG.
