Migration is a global, ancient, and public phenomenon and, at the same time, local, contemporary, and personal. This multifaceted nature makes the study migrant health rewarding and difficult at the same time.

The focus of this seminar are the epidemiological methods relevant for migrant health research, focusing on aspects were migrants in a cohort is a unique possibility to study aspects not possibly to study by their means (natural experiments) but also difficulties in using epidemiological methods when studying migrants due to unmeasured confounding.
