Briefing Paper 95 – Protecting the most vulnerable in society: Migration and COVID-19

April 7, 2020

In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers (MRAs) lack access to health institutions and, if living in refugee camps and in reception centres, they live in close, confined spaces where social distancing is not possible.

How can they be asked to perform this act of social responsibility when, contrary to any social responsibility, the inequality gaps in society have been deepened and the most vulnerable in society have to withstand any challenge with very limited support?
