Special issue: (Well)Being in the City: a focus on health and migration in Johannesburg (March 2017) Urban Forum 28, no. 1. [ISSN: 1015-3802 (Print) 1874-6330 (Online)
In this issue, insights into how migration and mobility are mediating health within an African urban context are brought together. The papers bring the voices of different urban migrant groups to the fore and provide fresh perspectives on approaches for exploring how to research and respond to migration, mobility, and urban health in southern Africa. Advocating for mixed method and multi-disciplinary approaches, the papers provide important contributions to multi-disciplinary thinking around complex social issues.
