4. COVID-19 Call for Submissions. The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has produced a dramatic impact on economies and societies worldwide. Migrant workers in host countries and labour migration fluxes have been affected in diverse and significant ways. Against this background, co-editors Giulia Ciliberto (University of Naples “Federico II”) and Fulvia Staiano (Giustino Fortunato University and National Research Council of Italy) welcome submissions for a collective volume that aims to analyse the complex challenges faced by migrant workers in the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Submissions from scholars with diverse backgrounds – ranging from international and EU law, international relations and social sciences – are welcome. The edited book is an initiative related to the EULab Summer School on Labour Migration in Europe (funded with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union). Abstracts should be submitted to eulab2020 {at} gmail(.)com by 30 September 2020. For more information, please access the complete call for submissions here.
