Discussion 2020

Containment and exclusion. Migration and flight in the pandemic

Discussion in cooperation with Arbeitskreis Wissenschaft und Verantwortlichkeit der Universität Innsbruck

Arbeitskreis Wissenschaft und Verantwortlichkeit

For months the Covid-19 pandemic has dominated the social discourse. Only rarely, however, the attention focuses on its impact on migration and flight. But the current situation in particular has highlighted and exacerbated existing social inequalities and power relations. What consequences do political measures and economic developments have for the working and living situations of migrants and refugees? What are the effects of the renationalisation of European politics and the strengthened border regimes? What are the issues and challenges counselling services are facing?
