Is Heading Home a Dead End? COVID-Induced Migration and Local Labor Market Opportunities in Rural India

With over 200,000 migrants returning to Bihar in the wake of COVID-19 outbreak and a nationwide shutdown, our project works with the Government of Bihar's COVID-19 Response Team to support a rapid policy response. Specifically, we will be conducting high-frequency surveys of return migrants in Bihar’s villages to better understand the challenges they face, and we will be regularly providing key insights to our partners in the Government of Bihar to inform their COVID-19 response.
