Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health (No longer conducted)
16th Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health
June 15 – July 1, 2021
The Annual Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health is one of the few academic spaces dedicated to present and analyze in depth the interrelation between migration, the health of migrants, and global health from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
The near 300 million international migrants and refugees worldwide are at high risk of disproportionate burden from diseases, because of social, political, and structural factors associated with their migration status. Increasing border restrictions have also had an impact on the mobility of migrants and the role of humanitarian organizations serving them.
During the nine online sessions of the Summer Institute, participants will have the opportunity to hear from experts about different health issues that affect mobile populations, and how national and international policies and practices have impacted migrant and refugee populations in Europe, the Americas, and other world regions. They will also learn about research tools and best practices to conduct research and education to mobile populations.
The Summer Institute is intended for researchers, faculty, students, public health and healthcare providers, community leaders, individuals working in the non-profit sector, government officials, and other professionals working or interested in the health of migrant populations.
Today, more than ever, we need to have a better understanding of the health effects of migration, and improve the skills of those individuals dedicated to conducting research, impacting policies, and improving health services related to migration and global health. The 16th Annual Summer Institute on Migration and Global Health will take place virtually, from June 15 to July 1, 2021.
