Eurac Research has launched a new research blog, titled “Covid-19 and Beyond – How we can reboot the world after the pandemic”, which takes an interdisciplinary look at developments during and future scenarios after the coronavirus crisis. I’m happy to be able to contribute to this great new platform with a post on the interconnectedness of health and mobility.
It’s titled “Empowerment of female migrants through self-organized network structures in Bavaria: A best-practice model for South Tyrol?” and has just been published in the journal soziales_kapital.
You can read it online here.
I’ve had the pleasure of writing an article titled “The Minority Safepack Initiative – A European Participatory Process Supporting Cultural Diversity” for the latest edition of the European Yearbook of Minority Issues.
The edited volume has been published with Brill Nijhoff at the beginning of March 2020, and can be purchased here.
I’m very happy to announce that our edited volume “Health in Diversity – Diversity in Health: (Forced) Migration, Social Diversification and Health in a Changing World” has now been published by Springer VS!
The book, edited by me, Ulrich Becker and Elisabeth Wacker, offers an interdisciplinary and international look at the relationship between refugees, diversity, and health, including health care policies, socio-political framework conditions, environmental factors, the situation in refugee camps, quality-of-life approaches and economical perspectives.
You can order both the softcover and the e-book versions here.

From March 12th-14th, 2019, the 2nd South-East African and European Conference on Refugees and Forced Migrants: Health in Diversity, Diversity in Health? that I co-organized with Dr. Sellah Lusweti from Pwani University took place in Kilifi, Kenya.
The conference presented African and European perspectives on diversity and health, focusing on an interdisciplinary approach (political science, law, economics, sociology, anthropology, medicine) in order to offer a broad analysis of different health and diversity-related issues. We will be publishing the conference papers in a edited volume with Springer VS at the beginning of next year.
In the meantime, please check out the anthology for the last refugee and migration conference in 2016 that I co-edited with Prof. Ulrich Becker and Prof. Elisabeth Wacker. The book, titled Refugees and Forced Migrants in Africa and the EU: Comparative and Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Challenges and Solutions, is available following this link or can be accessed via SpringerLink.
