Date: 25/05/2020
This edition examines the many implications of the COVID-19 for migration, mobility and asylum in Europe. The Special Focus highlights new obstacles that have been put in place to make it more difficult to claim the right to asylum, the increased health risks faced by asylum seekers, and the renewed prospects for the regularisation of migrant workers. Other key highlights of this Policy Update include an analysis of the humanitarian situation in Greece, the impact of COVID-19 on the Schengen free movement area, the launch of Operation Irini in the Central Mediterranean, replacing Operation Sophia, and the latest developments around the European Commission’s upcoming New Pact on Migration and Asylum. The Closer Look is a contribution from the Greek Forum of Refugees.
