Event description
NODE UK|Japan webinar: Surviving COVID-19 - Vulnerable migrants in Japan and the UK

About this Event

This jointly organised webinar explores the impact of Covid-19 on migrants with precarious legal status in the UK and Japan. It examines how migration governance in the context of a public health crisis can exacerbate existing vulnerabilities and produce new ones, affecting disproportionally migrant communities already at the margin of our societies.

Speakers:

Professor Jenny Phillimore (University of Birmingham, UK) – "We are forgotten": Forced migration, sexual and gender-based violence and COVID-19

Professor Gracia Liu Farrer (IAM, Waseda University, Japan) – Surviving COVID-19: Nepalese restaurant workers in Japan

Chair:

Professor Nando Sigona (IRiS, University of Birmingham)
