IMMIGRATION, PUBLIC POLICY, AND HEALTH

Newcomer Experiences in Developed Nations
Edited by Dennis Raphael

Mar 2017 330pp
9781551309279 Paperback £70.50 / €80.00

A critical assessment of how public policy affects the health of immigrants, this
interdisciplinary volume is an integral contribution to the study of immigration in modern
developed nations. Authors employ a welfare state analysis to examine the political and
economic systems that shape public policy, turning to several Canadian and international
case studies that demonstrate how these policies specifically impact immigrant
experiences and health outcomes. Exploring ideals of multiculturalism, solidarity, and
equity, Dennis Raphael’s edited collection is an excellent resource for students interested in
comparative health care systems, health economics, and global immigrant experiences.

How is new technology - cyberwarfare, drones, and more - affecting global security?
Are the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals having an impact? What progress are
