COVID-19 has shown that the migration laws in Europe demand actualisation. Millions of people live undocumented within our borders in unworthy conditions while working in basic services. This is not only the case in the agricultural sector, but also in various others (e.g. construction industry, private elderly care and nursing, work in slaughterhouses, in gastronomy), in which migrant workers are often employed. With this webinar, we want to raise awareness about this problematic situation and incentivize the participants to think about how we as citizens can improve the situation.
