Description: The current COVID-19 pandemic has created a major health crisis and disrupted economies around the globe. It also forced governments to implement restrictions in the movement inside and out of countries’ borders. All of these have severely impacted people’s lives, forcing them to adapt to endure new challenges.

While affected, migration flows are still present, and migrants face new challenges. Migrants’ workers suffer from separation, loss of employment, difficulties to re-enter their country of origins; migrant women become even more vulnerable; governments and organizations struggle to maintain and implement inclusion and reintegration. All of these take a major toll on migrants and migration practitioners, adding additional health issues to address, and many new challenges to overcome.
