The impact of COVID-19 in the migration area in EU and OECD countries
The COVID-19 pandemic had far-reaching effects on all areas related to asylum and migration throughout 2020. The impact was felt particularly in terms of
border closures, travel restrictions and the need to introduce sanitary measures to try to bring the virus under control. EU and non-EU OECD countries adopted
contingency measures in an effort to keep systems operational and to mitigate the impacts on migrants and citizens to the extent possible.
This EMN OECD Umbrella Inform closes earlier information gaps, summarises and analyses the key findings across the earlier Informs, and identifies the main challenges and learning points in responding to the pandemic at national level.
