Covid-19 and Migrant Workers’ Social Rights › view all


Eloisa Harris and Jakob Henninger publish a blog on the impact of Covid-19 on migrant workers social rights in western Europe

Along with Friederike Roemer (CRC 1432), BIGSSS PhD fellows Eloisa Harris and Jakob Henninger wrote a short piece on the short and long term effects of the current pandemic on the economic security of migrant workers in Europe. They find that migrant workers disproportionately face economic risks in countries where eligibility for social-assistance benefits is strict, and where decisions regarding their remaining in the country are highly contingent on income – such as Denmark and the UK.

This short blog draws from data collected in project B04, where Eloisa is a collaboration partner – and more research output is coming soon!
