Im/migration and Reproductive Health: Work Meeting

This first work meeting with researchers from Scandinavia who work on reproductive health and migration issues emerges from a wish to establish a Nordic forum for discussion and exchange of ideas. The meeting is a closed event.

In collaboration with Centre for Global Health, the meeting will take place at the Institute of Health & Society at the University of Oslo. Amongst the main aims are to establish a network of scholars working within the fields of reproductive health and migration issues and to establish a platform for future cooperation and research activities. The meeting provides an opportunity to not only think comparatively about the relationship between im/migration and reproductive health in Scandinavia, but also to discuss implications on research and how Scandinavian countries address challenges  with providing sexual reproductive health services to im/migrant populations.
