TOPIC: The COVID-19 As A Mobility Crisis: Repatriation of Migrants from the Gulf States
DATE: 29 May 2020
TIME: 2:00 PM (Manila time)

COVID-19 has greatly affected global migration as governments and migrants in migrant-sending and -receiving countries are facing challenges in mobility and governance. In the case of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, repatriation of migrant workers is currently being implemented to help suppress the pandemic as the majority of the GCC population are migrants.

The webinar aims to examine the Gulf countries’ differential repatriation logics, measures, and its implications to migration governance, along with the impacts of the pandemic to the Philippine-Gulf migration corridor. The online discussion intends to gain insights on migration and the well-being of migrants including the future of labor migration.
