COVID-19 and Migrant Workers in Nepal


Local news reports in Nepal show that there are incidents of boycotting and abandoning migrant populations by residential populations throughout the country. Returning laborers are not being welcomed to their villages. This Working Group will examine both hate crimes committed against migrant workers and patterns of domestic and gender violence among low-income families in urban and rural settings in Nepal following the implementation of stay-home orders by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19.
