The department promotes and carries out training activities for healthcare and welfare staff. It also conducts research on social and health policies addressing migrants’ needs. The research areas are:
- the challenges welfare states have to take up whilst considering immigration, new models of solidarity and social inclusion, the evolution of the notion of citizenship and social rights;
- the multilevel governance of social and health policies addressed to migrants: the question of the right to access health care and social assistance for legal residents, but also irregular and undocumented migrants;
- the diverse conceptions of health and disease in global contexts;
- the mutation of services’ demand and supply, with particular emphasis on welfare and healthcare services for the person;
- the monitoring of migrants’ health conditions;
- women migrants health conditions, particularly with regard to reproduction.
