Reviews

“The volume is coherent, and by focusing on the ground-level interactions and their moral dimensions, [it] contributes to the field of migrant health and promotes discussions around the need for inclusive and equitable healthcare systems.” • Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

“The notion that ‘even health systems that are considered “universal” restrict the access’ of migrants is the main takeaway from Borders across Healthcare, an important, well thought-out collection of nine essays. Published in 2020, the collection was written and compiled before the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, far from diminishing its relevance, the timing makes the book prescient and even more insightful. ... The hope is that this volume will be read widely, and these questions will be taken up by practitioners and researchers across Europe.” • Nordic Journal of Migration Research

Description

Examining which actors determine undocumented migrants’ access to healthcare on the ground, this volume looks at what happens in the daily interactions between administrative personnel, healthcare professionals and migrant patients in healthcare institutions across Europe. Borders across Healthcare explores contemporary moral economies of the healthcare-migration nexus. The volume documents the many ways in which borders come to disrupt healthcare settings and illuminates how judgements of a health-related deservingness become increasingly important, producing hierarchies that undermine a universal right to healthcare.
