SEMINAR – FORUM
Mindanao State University (MSU-GSC) and Ateneo Migration Center of Ateneo de Davao University in partnership with Human Rights Working Group (HRWG) Indonesia and Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF) Japan is going to hold a seminar-forum on the Global Pandemic Crisis and its Impact to Migrant Workers in Asia: OFWs, Families, and Children Left-Behind on March 29, 2021, 3PM (Manila Time) / 2PM (Jakarta Time).
It is apparent these days that migrant workers face the risks of unemployment and deportation due to the economic downturn resulting from the pandemic.
In this regard, it is important to find out the specific ways migrants have been affected by the pandemic, and examine the measures adopted in migrants’ host and home countries to prevent, mitigate and address its negative impacts.
This seminar aims to look into the need to apply a whole-of-government approach for better implementation of pandemic response measures in the country.
Finally, it offers policy recommendations to address major gaps in the implementation of existing policies that address the plight of migrant workers, their families, and children left-behind.
