The Social Policies and Services training series focuses on social policies and services related to COVID-19, including strategies for supporting efforts at the local, state, and federal levels.

About the Session

Led by full-time lecturer Mashura Akilova (bio) and Professor of Social Policy Neeraj Kaushal (bio), this session will cover how the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting border closures and economic lockdowns are affecting migrant workers, immigrants, and displaced people in the United States and internationally. What is the effect on receiving and sending economies? What are the likely long term impacts of the pandemic on immigration policies and practices in the post-pandemic world? And what would be the best practices to protect the immigrant, migrant, and displaced groups in future pandemic situations?
