Book Review

Book review of Sahraoui, N. (Ed.) (2020) Borders across Healthcare: Moral Economies of Healthcare and Migration in Europe. New York and Oxford: Berghahn, 233 pp.



The notion that “even health systems that are considered ‘universal’ restrict the access” of migrants (Chapter 1, p. 24) is the main takeaway from Borders across Healthcare, an important, well thought-out collection of nine essays edited by Nina Sahraoui (Centre de Recherches Sociologiques et Politiques de Paris, CNRS, France). Published in 2020, the collection was arguably written and compiled before the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, far from diminishing its relevance, the timing makes the book prescient and even more insightful.
