This collection features some of the papers presented at the first Doctors within Borders workshop in January 2020. The event brought together an international group of social scientists, healthcare practitioners and activists to explore shared interests in migration, borders, healthcare and mobility.

It was a timely discussion. The COVID-19 crisis threw many of the issues raised into painfully sharp focus. Although this collection predates COVID, it is all the more relevant and important today.

It includes:

Who is a ‘Temporary Migrant’?  Deservingness, Nationalism and Migrant Access to the NHS | Gwyneth LonerganRead

Bordering and Disordering in the National Health Service | Kathryn Cassidy | Read

Polish Migration Forum: Assisting Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Poland | Agnieszka Kosowicz | Read
