Virtual roundtable discussion to focus on the future of human mobility in a post-COVID world

| Posted by UP Media and Public Relations Office

 

In addition to its health-related impacts, the COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally disrupted the patterns of how people move and travel to do business, go to work, seek education or meet family and friends.

Human mobility at all levels, currently under the pressure of various restrictions as well as psychological barriers of fear, is undergoing a period of transformation with unknown implications for the future.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the Centre International de Formation des Autorités et Leaders (CIFAL) Philippines have joined efforts to host a special virtual roundtable on the role and future of migration and human mobility in the post-COVID era. This event aims to spark discussion among practitioners and policy makers not only to point to the evident consequences but also to look beyond the horizon of the current pandemic and try to identify key trends and implications for human mobility in the long term.

The UNITAR and CIFAL Philippines’ virtual roundtable discussion on “Human Mobility in the Post-COVID-19 Recovery: Looking Beyond the Horizon of the Current Pandemic” will be held on Thursday, 29 April 2021, at 9:00 (CET).

Dr. Edna Co, Director of the UP-CIFAL (International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders) Philippines, will deliver the inaugural remarks for the virtual roundtable discussion.
