OCHR Webinar: ‘Migrants, Displaced People and the COVID Crisis’
On 4 September 2020, Prof. Melissa Siegel contributed to a live webinar organised by the Oxford Consortium for Human Rights (OCHR) entitled ‘Migrants, Displaced People and the COVID Crisis’. Prof. Siegel said that remittances are estimated to decrease by almost 20 percent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also addressed the effects of this reduction for development. The other experts on the panel discussed how COVID-19 impacts internally displaced persons (IDPs) in North-West Syria, migrants in the Gulf states and mobility in the Schengen zone.
