Migrants’ health and interdisciplinary logics

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: migrants; social determinants of health; migration status; labour protections; fundamental rights.

The article reflects on the role of law and legal research on the health and health and safety of migrant workers according to an interdisciplinary logic. It uses the approach of the social determinants of health to highlight the effects of law, and in particular of immigration law, as a creative source of health inequalities, and makes the case for a labour based approach for enhancing the health and health and safety of migrant workers, arguing that claims towards States in this direction might find support with the international framework on the protection of the fundamental right to health.
