Workshop in English : 
Contesting Global Health Governance in the Post-Soviet Region: International Actors and “the Field”

En resumé : Cet atelier organisé par l’Inalco et l’Université Paris 13 questionne la gouvernance en matière de santé publique dans les Etats post-soviétiques aux niveaux international et régional, local. Il s’agira de s’interroger sur les normes fabriquées par les organisations internationales et les réponses locales (à travers différents exemples comme le VIH/SIDA, le rôle des ONG, etc.)

Detailed description :
In the post-Soviet region, global health governance initiatives and specific interventions face different types of reactions from a web of local actors. Interactions between global health governors and local state and non-state actors often taking the shape of explicit or implicit contestations are an important source of so far underappreciated “post-Soviet” material for studies of global health politics. Such material and reflections from the field riddled with contestations are particularly relevant for understanding of how global health governance frameworks and specific instruments fit or misfit certain local contexts and how such contexts can provide important feedback for various global health governors. Importantly, in the post-Soviet region health governance is increasingly discussed in relation to such issues as security (highlighting contradictions between human rights framing and public health framing), gender (implying various stigmas and discrimination, in particular, in relation to sexual orientation) and labour migration (raising issues of migrants’ access to healthcare but also of their role in spreading infectious diseases). This workshop thus aims to open broader discussions linking health with other public policy/global governance issues that are challenged within global-local interactions. This workshop gathers papers focusing on international interventions in the fields of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis as well as disability and child welfare/health issues in the post-Soviet space.
