26th November 2020

We are pleased to invite abstract submissions for the 1st Symposium on Migration, Health and Integration, which will take place on the 26th November 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 one 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.
