Date of Publication: August 2020
In an effort to enhance the development of concrete and constructive policy approaches to managing Africa/ European Union (EU) migration amidst the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 crisis, the University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), South Africa, and the Nordic Africa Institute (NAI) in Sweden, held two joint webinars in June 2020 on “The Impact of COVID-19 on Africa/EU Migration”. Both webinars also aimed to consolidate a Community of Practice (CoP) on implementing the United Nations (UN) 2018 Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration. About 60 African and European policymakers, scholars, and civil society activists participated in the webinar series, with some attending both sessions.
