課程概述

Course will explore global impact of current COVID 19 pandemic on migrants, refugees, and displaced persons, from perspective of psychology and human rights. We will critically assess current overall trends, and their historical origins, by exploring psycho-social impact of policies and practices implemented throughout the world in response to the pandemic, which notably include closing of borders, sharp reduction and even suspension of international travel, plus imposition of unprecedented globalized measures to control mobility, and quarantines.

Focus on case studies from key regions (e.g. U.S, Latin America, European Union, Africa, and Asia) and borders (U.S-Mexico, Euro-Mediterranean, Australia and its environs). Particular attention will be dedicated to dynamics of the pandemic in China, Taiwan, U.S. , and Western Europe, including intensification of anti-Asian (and specifically anti-Chinese) rhetoric and hate crimes plus racism and xenophobia more generally in the U.S and elsewhere.

Issues will be explored from inter-disciplinary, comparative, and intercultural perspective situating current trends within broader historical and theoretical context of evolving relationship between migration policy, migrant rights, and human rights.
 

課程目標
This course will:

1) Provide overview and case studies regarding the impact of current global pandemic on migrants, refugees, and displaced persons, characteristics of the policies and practices that have been implemented, and implications, and

2) Explore relationship between measures that have been taken within context of the pandemic and longstanding patterns of structural violence at U.S-Mexico border, in the Meso-American region (Mexico/Central America), at borders of European Union and of Australia, and regarding internal migrants in contexts like India

Title of course refers literally to “states of emergency” that have been declared globally in wake of current global pandemic, which also alludes metaphorically to extent to which measures reflect states of “exception” directed at migrants and other marginalized groups in varying contexts explored by scholars such as Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt, and Giorgio Agamben.

Limitations on rights of migrants have long been grounded in varying expressions of racism and xenophobia and embedded in rationales reliant on supposed imperatives of national security. In the U.S, limitations of this kind have deep historical roots and have been imposed in contexts ranging from U.S territorial expansion as result of the Mexican War, to the Chinese Exclusion Act (1882), national origins quotas, Japanese internment, and the Muslim travel ban, with magnified effects at the U.S-Mexico border.
