授業の概要・目的 UNHCR's annual Global Trends Report, released on June 19th, 2018 (https://www.unhcr.org/ph/figures-at-a-glance), shows that 68.5 million people around the world were forcibly displaced at the end of 2017. Thoughout that year, 16.2 million people were newly displaced, meaning 31 people were newly displaced every minute of the day. Of all these 68.5 million, 52% were children. In part because of the fate of a Syrian toddler who drowned crossing the Mediterranean in September 2015 - Aylan Kurdi - together with continuous waves of refugees crossing the Mediterranean, media coverage has been mainly focusing on the Syrian dimension of this crisis. But those 35 million plus young persons have been from all over the world: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burma/Myanmar, El Salvador, Eritrea, Honduras, Iraq, Libya, and Nigeria, among others.

In light of such crises, two basic questions will guide this course's trajectory. First, what are the basic forms of power relations embedded in the refugeehood? Second, what has gone wrong with the refugee regime? In answering these questions, the course employs transdisciplinary approaches from political science, philosophy, anthropology, cultural studies, and sustainable humanosphere studies.

The course comprises four parts. First, it will start with Melissa Fleming's powerful book - A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Refugee's Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival (2017) - hoping to stimulate students to raise questions (whether conceptual or not, theoretical or otherwise) that will guide our journey thoughout the semester. Second, there will be a few lecture sessions by the instructors to lay down some key philosophical, theoretical and conceptual bases for the course. Third, students will lead class discussion based on the rest of the required readings. Fourth, there will be students' presentations of their term papers' proposals.
到達目標 The main aim of this course is to develop a set of basic - yet, at times, deep - understanding on the complexities and dynamics of forced migration on global, regional and national scales, with special attention to some contexts of war and/or persecution.
授業計画と内容 Pedagogically, the course will be conducted in both lecture and seminar formats, whereby students are expected to have been prepared to discuss the reading(s) assigned for each session.During the third part of the course, i.e., students leading class discussion, the following is the detailed procedure:

The discussion of such reading(s) will be led by about 1-2 persons, depending on class enrollment. The leader(s) will prepare a PPT/Keynote. Within each PPT/Keynote, they will have to fulfill the following requirements:
- (H) Highlight three key topics, from your perspective, and inform the class why they are important - write in your own language, make them crisp, and no more than 2-3 sentences for each topic. (C) Two comments on the material. (Q) Ask two questions.
- Provide page number(s) of the reading material from where topics/comments/questions were taken, so that your friends can consult the material later on.
- Present your PPT/Keynote in the classroom. Don't forget to submit your PPT/Keynote to the instructors at the end of the session.

Note: It is advisable that you prepare your presentation well in advance. And the discussion-leaders may suggest further reading materials to the class. You may also utilize any media - literature, newspaper, pictures, films, music etc. - to help you convey your messages.
