Abstract

Recognized and recently arrived refugees, the group in focus in this part, are severely impacted by the current COVID-19 crisis. While some can assert themselves by working in the health care, sewing mouth caps or cleaning shopping carts, many others are negatively influenced by this crisis because their language development slowed down, their work contracts are not extended and participation in Dutch society is hampered. In part two of this series of blogs based on ongoing research external linkat Utrecht University among young refugees, we discuss the impact of the corona crisis on recently arrived refugees in Amsterdam.
