We provide a general list of references on forced immigration that is focused on recent migratory movements within the European context. We also recommend some other works whose theoretical perspective can be applied to the context of the course. Additionally, each lecturer will recommend other material relating to the week’s main topic, focusing  on particular geographical areas, theoretical perspectives, and a diversity of artistic, cultural, political, economic or social factors.
