The paper focuses on migrant workers’ health and the relation between health and the law through interdisciplinary dialogue, involving the fields of health studies, medicine and law. It employs the concept of the ‘social determinants of health’ to reflect on the effects of immigration law on the health outcomes of migrant workers and presents an example of how labour protections can be used as a redress mechanism. Finally, it explores the scope of the international right to health and its potential for supporting reform objectives concerning both immigration and labour law.
