Migration, Health, and Integration Symposium

  • DATE / TIME:

    The Maastricht Graduate School of Governance/UNU-MERIT will host the Migration, Health, and Integration Symposium on 26th November 2020 in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The symposium, a collaboration between the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance/UNU-MERIT (with the Maastricht Centre for Global Health and the Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development) and the Radboud University Network on Migrant Inclusion (RUNOMI) in Nijmegen, will highlight the complex intersections between migration, health and integration through discussions around both research and practise. The symposium brings together academics, including students and early career researchers, health professionals, policy makers and representatives of civil society to discuss issues related to migrant health. The event will also mark the official launch of the Health and Migration Collaborative Community web site, a growing resource portal that provides short analytical reviews and other support materials for academics, practitioners, policy-makers, and other stakeholders interested in migration and health.

    The symposium will feature three plenary discussions and four thematic panels. The organizers invite submissions that cover a range of migrant health-related topics (e.g. access to care, health promotion, non-communicable and communicable diseases, mental health, climate change…). Submissions can be a reflection from practice as well as academic research (e.g. completed research, ongoing projects, conceptual and methodological challenges). Deadline for submission is September 04, 2020.
