What the COVID19 crisis means for the governance of integration

Peter Scholten/Erasmus University Rotterdam – Netherlands

The COVID19 crisis has significant impact on the governance of migration and migration-related diversities. The governance of migration has changed in the context of the new mobilities and immobilities at times of the pandemic. This challenges conventional ways of thinking for instance on asylum policy and return policies. The governance of migration-related diversities, such as in integration policies, has also changed in the context of the pandemic. The functioning of various integrating institutions, such as education and the labour market, has been disturbed. At the same time there are more and more migrants that have been captured in the immobilities of the pandemic, and eager to engage in some form of incorporation process.
