The pandemic has, among other consequences, produced the hardening of border policies and further restrictions on the mobility to asylum seekers and other migrants coming from the global South. The end of this period characterised by repeated lockdowns across and within national and international spaces will require a new vision of mobility and migration. Increasing shortages of workforce in several countries and sectors are generating a debate over new admission criteria on migrant workers. The two global compacts of migration and asylum, in turn, have tried to design a possible framework for safe and sustainable migration policies. The seminar will debate these issues confronting perspectives from different countries in Northern Europe and Southern Europe and in Turkey.
