Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to postpone the Health, Migration and Integration Symposium to November of 2020. More details on the precise date will follow closer to the time.
We thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming you at the Health, Migration and Integration Symposium in November 2020.
We are pleased to invite abstract submissions for the Migration, Health and Integration Symposium, which will take place on the 25th May 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 a plenary discussion and four thematic panels. We invite abstract for papers, reflections on practise, and ongoing/future research that will be presented in one of the panels. Each panel is planned for 90 minutes and will feature three contributions selected from among received abstracts.
The symposium will be hosted in the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance/UNU-MERIT in Maastricht. The event will be free of charge (registration is required) and catering will be provided. Please note that no financial support for travel or accommodation is available for participants or panellists.
