Research Group: Global Health and Migration

Globalization and its accelerating cross-border flows of people and goods have created strong linkages between global health and migration.

Between 2016 and 2018, Dr. Jennifer Huang Bouey of Georgetown University and Dr. Cheng Feng of Tsinghua University convened a group of leading U.S. and Chinese scholars for dialogue and research around key academic and policy issues relating to pandemic preparedness, the cross-national movement of peoples, and challenges they pose for national health systems. The group met several times in Washington, DC, Beijing, and Guangzhou, engaging scholars, students, and state and local policymakers, as well as the general public, through their meetings, public events, and site visits.
