Reflections of The World during the Covid-19 Pandemic On the Lives of Immigrants

Immigrants are at the center of the debates on the possible consequences of the Covid-19 global pandemic. Measures to limit human mobility created an important awareness concerning international or national mobile/migrant seasonal workers and refugees (we will be using the term immigrant throughout the article) on a global scale. This unexpected pause in the mobility of millions of immigrants showed how regions of the world that appeared to be separated from each other by deep inequalities were in reality tightly coupled.

Ceydilek, Erdem (2018-09-14)
If the rise of the populist radical right in Europe is one fact, the other fact is that, as even a skin-deep look at their discourses will show, the roots of this rise mostly lay in the foreign policy-related issues such as EU membership, immigration policies and security. On the other hand, it is also observable that domestic political gains have priority for these European populist radical right (EPRR) leaders than the foreign policy goals. For this reason, foreign policy issues have an ambivalent nature ...

Rethinking Asylum Policies in the EU lessons from the Syrian refugee Crisis
Eralp, Yakup Atila; Yıldız, Ayselin Gözde (null; 2015-03-07)
