MIGREC - 2nd Newsletter - Impact of COVID-19 on migration in Serbia
Added on 08/07/2020

MIGREC is a three-year research project funded by the European Union’s H2020 scheme, which started in October 2019. It aims to build a leading scientific research capacity in migration studies at the Faculty of Political Science (FPN) of University of Belgrade (UoB), ensuring that the UoB scholars can contribute effectively to the research, policy and practical challenges arising from multiple and intersecting changes which currently both Serbia and the whole European Union confront with.

Danica Šantić and Marija Antić, MIGREC team members, published a paper titled “Serbia in the time of COVID-19: between ‘corona diplomacy’, tough measures and migration management” in the scientific journal "Eurasian Geography and Economics".

The authors analyze the specificities of Serbia’s response to coronavirus. Two most important issues during the pandemic were the role of the state and the management of migration flows. Two phenomena shaped mobility patterns. Citizens returning from abroad were caught between accusations of spreading the virus and a plea for healthcare and other key workers from the Serbian diaspora to help in Serbia.
