On May 2 and 3, 2016, the Georgetown Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues hosted two days of expert discussions on critical issues at the intersection of migration and global health. Convened by Professor Jennifer Huang Bouey (Georgetown University) and Professor Cheng Feng (Tsinghua University), the meetings explored promising areas for research and policy collaboration around issues of common concern to the United States, China, and the global community.
A group of 11 leading U.S. and Chinese scholars from Georgetown, Tsinghua, and other institutions, representing disciplines ranging from epidemiology and anthropology to demography and law, focused on two key research themes: pandemic preparedness and the integration and settlement of cross-national migrants and refugees. The meetings also included a workshop open to D.C.-area scholars, students, and practitioners, and a policy consultation with government officials and other stakeholders. Read the full summary here.
