Immigration, Migration & Health  Look at same articles from assignment 1, just turn annotated bip to a research paper  Look at lec 08 for notes on assignment 2  Use atleast 4 sources of your annotated bip then you need to find 2 more additional resources, it can be chapters, books, articles have to be academic, and anything from course readings as additional sources --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----- Types of Migration: 1. Historical/Current:  Historical: ex: African slave trade, form of migration, ex: exile of Jewish population  Current::ex: population swap between Greece and Turkey 2. Voluntary/Forced:  Voluntary: coming to canada to go to school, deciding on your own to go to a country  Forced: migration that is not of your own doing, like Siberia  Permanent/ Temporary:  Permanent: your going to leave your country and settle there  Temporary: more of temporary migration now a days like those women who went abroad to make money and send it back home but thought of going back home, never thought of staying and living abroad.  Distance of Travel (Regional/International):  Regional: people from outside of Toronto cometo Toronto to study, so other cities,  International: vacation from India to China Definition of Migration: so GO BACK TO  One who had not received the refugee status is an "asylum seeker"  Only after being verified that you are a refugee by the government you are considered a refugee.  Asylum seekers in UK are house arrested, or put into detention centers.  Homosexuals, political parties are all social groups that are usually considered to be asylum seekers or refugees as they may be persecuted if they stay in their country.  IDP (internationally Displace People: Someone who has to leave their home but who has not crossed an international border  Refugee crosses border where IDP don’t. IDPS stay in their country.  IDP ex: due to natural disaster, they don’t have homes because homes are wrecked, they are displaced  International countries cant do much to help IDP's because the IDP is still in their own country, if internal countries were to help they would have to invade.  More IDPS's in the world than refugees DIaspora  historical understanding of Diaspora: people forced out of their homes and moved to other countries like the Jewish and African diaspora. (1st quote in slide)  Contemporary understanding of Diaspora: group that feels that they are outside of their country but still have a community a community that still shares the same culture as them etc.diapora is in the mind, it’s a recreation of a community, imagined community ,recreating what homeland is.ex: Scottish Diaspora, Christian Diaspora, Canadian Diaspora, ex of Diaspora events or actions: going to cultural events, certain dress, living in certain area of town,  Transnationalism: the idea that we have no longer have a permanent disconnect, even though we move to Canada we still keep connection to back home like sending good back home, sending letters or skyping back home, sending money back home; we never break those ties, we sustain those ties and therefore there is all these links to each other. Selection of Migration  Healthy Migrant Effect: those who migrate tend to be the healthiest in society and the most well off, those who are middle or high class. There is a certain privileged population who can migrate  Reverse Selectivity: certain population is able to move even though they are not well. A different type of population can come, the old people back home who are able to move from help of their kids in developed countries.  Unhealthy selection: reverse of healthy migrant effect, those who are unhealthy do not move, do not migrate.  Migration for health services: people moving for health services, ceratin countries may be able to provide health services that your home country cant so you migrate to that country to get the health service.  Unemployment or underemployment: Doctor back home but taxi driver in Canada  No social net
