The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact across most aspects of EU asylum and migration policies. Among others, it has impacted remittances from Europe, seasonal workers, access to asylum and resettlement, and highlighted the disproportionate barriers migrants face in accessing healthcare and basic rights. On the 11th of December, we had the chance to discuss with Olivia Sundberg Diez, Policy Analyst at the European Policy Center, and Papa Balla Ndong, member of the Bosch Alumni Network.
This event took place in the framework of the project “The World after COVID19: Migration and Mobility,” implemented by YouthNest (Greece), Ekonomiks (Kosovo), and the Fagaras Research Institute (Romania). Within the framework of this project we are organizing a series of online sessions with a focus on migration, funded by the International Alumni Center, Berlin.
