Like with any global crisis, COVID-19 is affecting the most vulnerable across our communities in worse ways than others, with migrants and refugees among the groups disproportionately affected by this virus. In the wake of the pandemic, Hello Europe brought together it's community of Hellopreneurs to collectively reflect on COVID-19’s impact on migration, asylum and integration, with the aim of aligning action most urgently needed. Working on the front-line, the Hellopreneurs bring new perspectives and solutions to respond to refugees and migrants’ needs in these unprecedented times.

 

Each piece in this article series addresses the pandemic from a different angle and puts forward a number of practical and implementable policy recommendations. Beginning with the most pressing needs refugees face, such as shelter and protection, the Hellopreneurs delve into ways to build communities of support that allow this population to not only become part of society, but improve it, and provide thought- provoking ideas on how to revisit the current migration system to make it more effective and just.

With this series, Hello Eruope aim to facilitate a conversation where social innovation meets policy with a view to jointly design solutions that address these challenges. We believe each of us has a role to play in improving migration policy and practice and hope you will join us in this conversation.
