PUBLI : Francesco Della Puppa and Fabio Perocco (Guest Eds.), “Migration and Covid-19”, Two Homelands, vol. 56, 2022


In 2021, Dve domo­vini • Two Home­lands publi­shed a special issue entitled The Coro­na­virus Crisis and Migra­tion (vol. 54), which contained nume­rous articles on various contexts and specific aspects. Consi­de­ring the impor­tance of the topic, one year later, Dve domo­vini • Two Home­lands is devo­ting a new issue to migra­tion in the pandemic era. In the edito­rial of issue 54, we analysed the coro­na­virus crisis’s origins, charac­te­ris­tics, and social effects. In this edito­rial, we present an over­view of migra­tory move­ments and migra­tion poli­cies and the impact on labour and health for immi­grants. The current eco-pan-syndemic has produced new elements compared to the pre-COVID era that are conso­li­da­ting exis­ting pheno­mena and high­ligh­ting old problems. While it has limited, inter­rupted, and disrupted migra­tory move­ments, at the same time, it has deepened the under­lying causes of migra­tion by accen­tua­ting the need to emigrate.
