This chapter analyzes migration and health with a focus on a broadly defined concept of forced or “compelled” migration. It highlights the influence of structures created through globalization on the level of agency of mobile populations. It argues that globalization has had a paradoxical effect on migration and the health particularly of the migrating populations. The primary focus of the discussion is on the ethical and humanitarian challenges presented by the “othering” of migrant groups.

Keywords: public health; forced migration; compelled migration; globalization; migrating populations; migrant groups
