2017 Global Health Studies Conference

Populations on the Move: Health and Human Rights of Refugees and Immigrants
April 7-9, 2017

The world faces a huge moral, strategic, and global health imperative to address the humanitarian challenge created by over 65 million individuals displaced by violent conflict and the increasingly frequent deadly natural and environmental disasters. Students will learn of the current global picture of who is on the move and why. Opportunities will be presented for students to respond to the ethical and legal aspects of refugee/immigrant status on a national and global level.

The Conference is sponsored by the Global Health Studies Program, the UI Center for Human Rights, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and International Programs.
