22mai11:00 am2:30 pmIs COVID-19 Reshaping North America? An Online Conference on the Borders, Boundaries and Mobility in the United States, Canada and MexicoRemoteRemote


North America’s economic success is very closely tied to the movement of people and goods across secure borders. The spread of COVID-19 has seen unprecedented measures aimed at curtailing cross border travel as well as a virtual halt to international migration. Sharing some of the longest international borders on the planet, the close ties between many North American cities have been profoundly impacted by COVID-19. Our ability to work together to combat the economic and social ramifications of the contagion have been impaired by varying national approaches and a strong desire to distance ourselves from the perceived geographic centers of the virus.

Metropolis North America and the COVID-19 Social Impacts Network will be holding an online conference on May 22nd from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm (EDT) to look at the impact of COVID-19 on migration and mobility in the United States, Canada and Mexico and examine possibilities for cooperation between researchers, policy-makers and civil society across our three countries.
