About the eBook

Migration is now firmly embedded as a leading global policy issue of the twenty-first century. Whilst not a new phenomenon, it has altered significantly in recent decades, with changing demographics, geopolitics, conflict, climate change and patterns of global development shaping new types of migration. Against this evolving backdrop, this Handbook offers an authoritative overview of key debates underpinning migration and health in a contemporary global context.

The first major handbook in this field, this Handbook of Migration and Health provides a comprehensive global overview of issues relating to migration and health. The Handbook is organised into six main sections: theories and models of migration; rights and deservingness; vulnerability and precarity; specific healthcare needs and priorities; healthcare provision; and transnational and diasporic networks. Chapters focus on a wide range of migrant groups including refugees, asylum seekers, trafficked people, international students, healthcare workers, and diasporic communities.

Bringing together the contributions of 58 leading researchers and drawing on case studies and examples from across the globe, the Handbook is intended as a scholarly, yet accessible reference tool for researchers, students, and practitioners interested in the field of migration and health.
