Conceptualizing the Nexus of Migration and Food Security During COVID-19

Keywords: COVID-19, Pandemic, Migration, Food Security, Vulnerability

Abstract

Migration has been a part of the livelihood strategy and risk diversification to relieve crises. Food insecu­rity as a consequence as well as a cause of migration demands review during the COVID-19 pandemic. This paper is an attempt to explore the dynamics and vulnerabilities that ensue from the nexus of migra­tion, food security, and COVID-19, as the economic crisis of COVID-19 seems more intensive when viewed through a migration lens. The vulnerability of the economy based on food imports and remit­tances is heightened by COVID-19. The whole nexus of migration and food security has shifted; even the positive aspects of migration are predisposed to vulnerabilities.
