HEAVEN’s key objective is to conceptualize the right to Primary Health Care for irregular migrants — a preventive and promotional right that is relevant to law and policy at different levels of governance. To do this, HEAVEN uses Venezuelan migration in Colombia as a case study, applying sociolegal tools (including participant observation, interviews and focus groups with humanitarian actors, institutional bodies and community leaders) to expand human rights law methodologies and catalyse the synergies between human rights and public health standards to promote healthier communities.
The project's scope goes beyond the above-mentioned research and includes intersectoral transfer-of-knowledge and impact-oriented activities (e.g. initiatives of legal advocacy, roundtables with key stakeholders, targeted human rights-based trainings and workshops).
