Migration, Health, and Integration Symposium on 26th November 2020

November 26, 2020

Please join us, Thursday, November 26th, 2020 for the Health, Migration, and Integration Symposium.

The symposium is 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.

The symposium will include the complex intersections between migration, health and integration through discussions around both research and practise. Discussions on issues related to migrant health will be conducted between academics, including students and early career researchers, health professionals, policy makers and representatives of civil society. 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.
