Working Groups in Europe
Border Policies, Detention, Securitization, and Health
Migration, asylum and border policies are a key determining factors in the health and well-being of migrants. Over the past two decades, increasingly States have introduced restrictive migration policies that deny migrants and asylum seekers their right to health and have an adverse impact on the health of people migrating. In Europe, this includes ranges from measures such as the hotspots in Greece and Italy, agreements with third countries to limit migration to Europe and increased securitization at borders whilst increased limits to protection, asylum and health access within European countries.
The working group will aim to review and examine key principles of European migration policy frameworks and their implication for the health of people migrating as well on practices and ethics of health practitioners.
