Abstract

The current mantra “Nothing will ever be the same again” is hyperbole, but COVID-19 without doubt marks a caesura requiring migration policymakers and practitioners to reflect on the future. In this article, the author sets out the epidemiological basics of pandemics, then offers views on the demographic, economic, and migration impacts of COVID-19. A closing section reflects on the choices it imposes.
