Recent SOAS – International Water Management Institute webinar

To mark International Migrants Day on 18 December 2020, the SOAS-coordinated AGRUMIG consortium organised a webinar exploring the impact of Covid-19 on global migration. Hosted by a Steering Group member, the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), the event included SOAS’s Professor Laura Hammond, Professor Peter Mollinga and Dr. Amrita Lamba in addition to the University of Sussex’s Professor Priya Deshingkar alongside Asel Murzakulova of consortium member University of Central Asia. United Nations University’s Dr. Nidhi Nagabhatia and IOM’s Katy Barwise also presented at the event, which was moderated by IWMI’s Dr. Alan Nicol. They discussed the challenges faced by migrants during the Covid-19 pandemic, country responses, migration challenges and short and long term impacts on global mobility. The event also launched AGRUMIG’s new working paper titled “Between a rock and a hard place: Early experience of migration challenges under the COVID19 pandemic.” Watch the full webinar here.
