Long-Term Trends in Migration Policy and the Impact of the Pandemic
On August 25, the Valdai Club presented its new report, titled “International Migration in Pandemic Times: Disrupted Links, Remittances and Migrantophobia”. In his opening remarks, the moderator of the discussion, Oleg Barabanov, Programme Director of the Valdai Discussion Club, noted that during the pandemic, the migration problem had become one of the most acute in many countries. He added that in Russia the proposals of the authorities to reopen the country for labour migration have faced resistance — both in the context of lobbying, and in connection with migrantophobia.
