Meghann Ormond focuses on how shifting visions and practices of citizenship and belonging transform transnational mobility, health and care relationships. Her work is situated at the intersections of migration studies, health and social geographies, disability studies, social gerontology and tourism studies. It is concerned with post-national, relational conceptualisations of care, responsibility and interdependence, and the governance of these.
