Covid19 and Systemic Resilience: What Role for Migrant Workers?

An online Research and Policy Conference 9 November @09.00 – 17.30, CET

This online conference marks the launch of the “Migrants and Systemic Resilience Hub” (MigResHub), a joint initiative of the Migration Policy Centre (MPC) at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence and Migration Mobilities Bristol (MMB) at the University of Bristol.

The primary aim of MigResHub is to facilitate research and policy debates on how migrant labour shapes the resilience of essential goods and services to the current Covid-19 pandemic and to similar shocks in the future. How does migrant labour affect the ability of essential services to continue during crises?

MigResHub aims to engage researchers and policy experts from different regions of the world, bringing together theories and insights from various academic disciplines, research literatures, and policy debates. The online conference provides an opportunity for a first discussion of key themes and priorities for a new research and policy agenda on migrants and systemic resilience, with a focus on food production, health services, and social care.

See our event page for the full conference programme. The conference is free and open to all but registration is required. The Zoom link to the Webinar will be provided following registration.
