This volume explores architecture and work dedicated to improving the health and living conditions of disadvantaged populations and groups affected by disaster or war.  Addressing the healthcare emergency of migrant populations in different ways, respecting the dignity of every human being, a symbiotic approach to helping people: these are the real challenges facing the Mediterranean people, and the global community today.
