On 4 December 2000, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 18 December as International Migrants Day (resolution A/RES/55/93). The day is intended to mark the 1990 adoption of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers and their Families (A/RES/45/158) ¹

The topic of migration forms a key element both of taught courses and of research at LSHTM.
For the days leading up to this year’s event, we have prepared a display of books from the collection which address different aspects of migration, including economic, social and public health aspects, and works which discuss the impacts of both internal and external migration, forced migration and so forth. These are on display in the Reading Room.
Please note that apart from one title marked “reference only” these titles may be borrowed in the normal way.
