The impact of COVID-19 on migration and migration governance in Kyrgyzstan
Had the pleasure of moderating this important discussion organised by the OSCE Academy in Bishkek. The video recording of the event is available in two languages - English and Russian (begins at 59.30), thanks to the excellent work of simultaneous interpreters.
"This webinar aims to discuss the consequences and implications of the pandemic on labour migrants and migration governance in Kyrgyzstan. The webinar is organized within the framework of the OSCE Academy’s AGRUMIG project (“Leaving something behind” – Migration governance and agricultural and rural change in “home” communities: Comparative experience from Europe, Asia, and Africa), supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme. The project looks at the issues of rural migrants, the impact of migration on agriculture and the migration governance policy in Kyrgyzstan."
