“Immigration in times of COVID-19”, Joaquín Arango, Blanca Garcés, Ramón Mahía and David Moya (CIDOB, Barcelona)

This issue of the CIDOB Immigration Yearbook analyses the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on immigration, human mobility, and migration policies. Spain is its main subject, but Europe and, to a lesser extent, Latin America and the United States are also discussed. The analysis particularly focuses on the pandemic’s effects on the living and working conditions of foreigners in our healthcare, domestic and care sectors and among seasonal agricultural workers.
