Based on the information gathered at IOM’s Global Migration Data Portal, the lecture identifies key trends in global migration during the COVID-19 pandemic and explains the impact of pandemic on mobility and migrants around the world. Special focus of the lecture is on irregular maritime migration to Europe (missing migrants in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean), migrant worker’s role in critical sectors such as healthcare, services, sales, agriculture, forestry and fishery, as well as remittance flows. The lecture discusses also infection and death rates among migrants and their access to COVID-19 vaccines, and provides insights into increasing anti-migrant sentiments across Europe.
