What can and should be done if a rejectee or an illegal alien claims to suffer from a serious illness which can only be treated in the country where a residence permit has been sought and/or refused? Should health be considered and accepted as a ground for granting an alien access to a specific country and its health services? A debate concerning these and other health, migration and return issues is much needed as answers to the challenging questions involved should be formulated. Various disciplines should take an active role in the discussion as fences need to be taken down: the legal experts and migration lawyers need to know the medical and societal implications, the ethics involved have to be clarified, the role played by the North-South relationship has to be determined and, finally, medical staff need to be informed of the human rights issues at stake. This Handbook, with contributions by experts from WHO, IOM and academia, contains a wealth of relevant background documents and also offers a complete overview of theories from various disciplines.;It will serve as a basis for a wider debate, covering: + the right to health + medical norm-setting + ethics + the right to migration + the duty to return + health and migration + Strasbourg case law + the need for information and harmonization. Health, Migration and Return analyses the intricate relationship from a variety of perspectives. It will provide important tools to the legal and medical professions and will also become an indispensible source for policy makers, the executive, the media, students and all others interested in issues of migration.
