Faculty Research Fellow Muhammad Zaman Co-Edits New Book on Migration and Health

Muhammad H. Zaman, a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and a Faculty Research Fellow at the Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, is the co-editor of a new book titled Migration and Health.

The book, published by The University of Chicago Press, is an interdisciplinary introduction to the implications of human migration for public health, examining not just the welfare of migrants, but also that of the source, destination, and ensuing-generation populations.

The book explores issues that are closely related to Zaman’s work as Pardee Center Faculty Research Fellow, where he and Prof. Carrie Preston lead a project exploring U.S. border externalization and policies designed to prevent migrants from reaching the U.S. border and requesting asylum. In particular, they seek to understand the longer-range impacts of these policies on both migrant and host communities, with a focus on youth.
