Immigration in London (1948-today)
This module attempts to provide some information on the condition of Caribbean and British-Asian immigrants in the UK and in London in particular, and on related issues such as unemployment, integration and identity. Ever since the arrival of the prime movers from the West Indies and the Indian subcontinent to satisfy the post-Second World War strong demand of cheap labour for the manufacturing industries, integration and identity have been hot issues in the UK.

A historical analysis of immigration shall be carried out, focusing in particular on the steps taken by the post-war British institutions to tackle the problem from the 1962 Commonwealth Immigration Act onwards, and on the social consequences of such political decisions.
Black British Friction

Considering black British fiction as a privileged historical document, a number of case studies introduced by second-generation black British writers (Kureishi, Hamid, Malkani, Husain) shall be discussed. The reference material includes works of fiction, critical essays, and audiovisual material.

Human Development Economics
Faculty of Economics 9 Ects
The course will focus on the concept of ’Human Development’ which is a development paradigm that is about much more than the rise or fall of national incomes. It is about creating an environment in which people can develop their full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with their needs and interests. People are the real wealth of nations. Development is thus about expanding the choices people have to lead lives that they value. And it is thus about much more than economic growth, which is only a means —if a very important one —of enlarging people’s choices
