Public Health, Migration, and Human Rights
CSPL 224
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

How do human rights principles apply to the public health challenges faced by migrant populations? What is the situation of migrants arriving at the southern border of the United States? Crossing the Mediterranean Sea or the Darien Gap? What does human rights as a frame have to say about immigrants who are fleeing extreme poverty or are forcibly displaced by the climate crisis? This course seeks to address these and other related questions by examining the intersection of public health, migration policy, and human rights standards. We do so by examining a series of case studies that consider the underlying issues from a variety of disciplines including economics, sociology, law, policy analysis, public health, and political science. Through this course, students will develop a critical understanding of the contemporary landscape and potential policy responses to promote public health and human rights in the international migration space.
