Vienna, 24th – 25th June

Providing health care for undocumented migrants (UDM) challenges practices in manifold ways. One central challenge is to manage a paradox opened up by conflicting demands: national regulations often severely restrict access to services for UDM, at the same time the right to health care is a fundamental human right that is laid down in various international instruments and ratified by all European countries.

This paradox – if you give care, you act against legal regulations on state level, if you don’t give care you act against fundamental rights obligations – cannot be solved on practice level. It has to be managed. Informal solidarity, functional ignorance, and structural compensation are central strategies identified when analysing practice models in Europe. Starting from these experiences the workshop provides conceptual and practical insights into managing paradox as well as tools how to overcome the dilemma.
