Hybrid public lecture by Prof. Michaela Hynie (York University)

21 April 2023

"Using social determinants of health lens to understand the impact of policy on refugee integration outcomes" organized by the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Warsaw and the COPOCS project (https://copocsproject.eu/).

Abstract of the lecture:  

This term also refers to the social factors that distribute these conditions unequally between groups in society (Graham, 2004, World Health Organization, 2008). In this talk, I will review the research on refugee resettlement policies in high-income countries in terms of the social determinants of health, and thus their impact on the health and well-being of refugees and asylum seekers, and how integration emerges as a factor across both the social determinants and the health outcomes for refugees and asylum seekers.  

I will be grateful if you would pass on information about the workshop to IMISCOE scholars and all those who might be interested.
The event will be held on April 27th from 3 to 4.30 p.m. CET with the required registration for online participation: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/m-hynie-refugee-integration-through-a-social-determinants-of-health-lens-tickets-601238058217
