Migration, Health and Social Inequalities: A Transnational, Activist Research Project

Migration, Health and Social Inequalities: A Transnational, Activist Research Project

Project Summary
Migration processes negatively affect the physical and mental health of migrants and their relatives generating a public health impact in sending, transit and receiving communities. The increasingly precarious and dangerous conditions of migration journeys and the growing hostility against immigrants in transit and receiving countries have further deteriorated health outcomes as a whole. The health inequalities of migrant populations are unquestionably on the rise, yet migration and health policies lack synching, and the link between health and migration is still too far from becoming a required part of health professionals’ training and praxis, a public priority, or common knowledge among migrant populations. This project studies how migration, health and social inequalities intertwine from an interdisciplinary, transnational and applied perspective.
