Webinar Presentation - Inclusive Social Protection for Migrants, Refugees and Asylum Seekers: Myth or Reality?

Slide presentation of the webinar held on 29 April 2021

The webinar offered an assessment of global practices on the access of international migrants and their families to national SP systems and aimed at informing the policy debate on extending SP to international migrants in the MENA region, especially in Egypt. More broadly, the objective was to provide answers to and reflections on the following three questions:

  1. To what extent do national SP systems have the capacity to integrate migrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers?
  2. How are other countries ensuring the right to SP for all, especially the most vulnerable?
  3. What is the potential to extend SP to migrants in MENA, with a focus on Egypt?
