Developing partnerships for new research
Sussex is internationally recognised for its interdisciplinary research in migration studies. Also, within the University, in the past two years, global health has emerged as an important and vibrant area of collaboration across the social and medical sciences. There is a small but growing body of established and doctoral researchers whose work brings together the areas of health and migration. The aim of this project is to connect these researchers in a common forum, to share and develop ideas for research and teaching and to establish international links and collaboration. Work on the interface between migration and health is both conceptually challenging and pioneering - within migration studies, the health of migrant and mobile populations is as yet a neglected area of research, and equally, within global health, the focus on migrant populations is as yet nascent.
