NEW ONLINE HUB ON MIGRATION IN EUROPE AIMS TO ACT AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE IN POLICY, RESEARCH AND PROGRAMMING
The new Lancet Migration European Regional Hub, co-led by Lancet Migration and the Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies, aims to make a positive impact on the lives of people who migrate to or within Europe, and the environments in which they live, through multidisciplinary research, as well as leadership, engagement, dissemination of research, and advocacy.
To launch the initiative, we asked a series of experts to share their thoughts on the topic and their vision for the Hub. The experts, including Professor Bernadette Kumar, Co-Chair, Lancet Migration, and Co-Lead European Regional Hub; Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and Professor Karl Blanchet, Co-Lead European Regional Hub; Geneva Centre of Humanitarian Studies, cover the challenges and opportunities in migration and health in the European Region, and how the European Regional Hub can advance migration health through sustainable multidisciplinary research, policy, and practice.
Lancet Migration is a global collaboration between The Lancet and researchers, implementers, and others in the field of migration and health that aims to address evidence gaps and drive policy change, building on the recommendations of the UCL-Lancet Commission on Migration and Health published in December 2018.
