Delivering maternity services in an era of superdiversity
Description
This new article released online for the Journal of Ethnic and Migration studies uses maternity services as a vehicle for exploring the experiences of new migrants and the barriers they encounter when seeking to engage with welfare services in superdiverse neighbourhoods. The article highlights widespread concerns in terms of equality of access and outcomes which are likely to extend beyond maternity services to other forms of welfare and are particularly worrying in relation to asylum seekers, failed asylum seekers and family/spousal migrants.
