Tracking mobile phone data is often associated with privacy issues, but these vast datasets could be the key to understanding how infectious diseases are spread seasonally, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Princeton University and Harvard University researchers used anonymous mobile phone records for more than 15 million people to track the spread of rubella in Kenya and were able to quantitatively show for the first time that mobile phone data can predict seasonal disease patterns.

We discussed how history shapes our views about global health with Mark Harrison, professor at Oxford University and panelist at the upcoming Princeton-Fung Global Forum on "Modern Plagues: Lessons Learned from the Ebola Crisis."

A border fence intended to halt migrants from traveling to Hungary through Serbia will be finished by the end of August. The border, located in Southern Hungary, has become a popular crossing point for thousands of migrants from the Middle East, Asia and Africa hoping to flee from the poverty and war in their home countries.

A host of legal implications are wrapped up in these migration patterns and the building of this fence. We discussed these issues with Kim Lane Scheppele, Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Sociology and International Affairs at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the University Center for Human Values. Scheppele is a faculty associate at the Program in Law and Public Affairs at the Wilson School and served as its director from 2005 to 2015.
