First convened in 2017, Resisting Borders: Refugee and Migrant Health and Responsibilities is a no travel, online, no fee conference aimed at discussing ethical issues surrounding responsibilities for the health of refugees, asylum-seekers, and other migrant and displaced people.

A second conference will be held in June 2020, as a satellite to the World Congress of Bioethics. The theme of the 2020 Resisting Borders conference will be Caring on the Landscape of Displacement: Mapping Moral Experience in Health Services for Migrants.

Submissions on any topic concerning migrant health and responsibility are welcome, with a special interest in contributions that reflect the moral experience of professionals (e.g. scholars, practitioners, advocates, or policy-makers) whose work concerns the care of migrants at any point of their journey and settlement, as well as the ethical issues that arise in providing this care.


  • Submission before February 15, 2020
  • Submit abstracts of no longer than 500 words via this link
