The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the very fabrics of societies. With the onset of the pandemic and the ultimate shutting down of businesses, industries, academic institutions, religious and other public places, freedom of movement has been significantly restricted in public life leading to unimaginable uncertainties for the future. The pandemic is far more than a health crisis; it has further implicated economies, politics, ecology, human relationships, labour market, socio-religious practices, legal and educational systems, thus illustrating that the cause and effect of migration are interwoven and undergoing the process of fundamental change. This web talk will try to explore the social impact and lesson learnt from the pandemic; to examine various academic approaches in addressing the future of migration in post-pandemic era in order to build a robust and healthy society.
