In Leiden University’s master’s in Cities, Migration and Global Interdependence you will study processes of migration, urbanisation, economic development and global interaction through time.

Focus on local and global level

Its central question is: how did people’s lives in the past half millennium change,  by processes of urbanisation, increased mobility, economic change, and global interaction? How did key transformations in various parts of the world change people’s lives? Key transformations were globalisation, (de)colonisation, industrialisation, migration, state formation, urbanisation and changing gender patterns. We focus both on the local and the global level.

Explore the movement of people, goods, services, capital, and ideas

We are interested in the way people, both men and women, cause and are affected by social, cultural and economic processes. Within the specialisation Cities, Migration and Global Interdependence (CMGI), you will look at the movement of people, goods, services, capital, and ideas. You will study the means by which actors influence these changes, but also the restrictions they encounter, which can be demographic, physical, spatial, political, institutional, legal, technical, financial, and imagined.
