Call for Abstracts: Health care provision for migrants: Comparing approaches to ethical challenges in Germany and the United Kingdom

March 14-18, 2016

The Institute for Ethics, History and Theory of Medicine and the Institute for Sociology at the LMU Munich are organizing an international workshop for young researchers on approaches to ethical challenges in the health care provision for migrants. The workshop is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (“BMBF-Klausurwoche”). It will give a forum to young scholars from all relevant disciplines to present their work on these issues and discuss their theses critically with peers working in the field and other distinguished experts. It will take place in Munich, Southern Germany.

We invite young scholars to apply on one of four topics (1) terminology and knowledge production, (2) access to public health care, (3) distributing responsibility for migrant health, and (4) value pluralism in health care.

Participants can address these issues within the context of the health care systems of Germany, the United Kingdom or both.

The deadline for abstract submission is September 1, 2015.
