Abstract

In an era of crises of transboundary nature, this talk aims to disentangle to what extent Spanish municipalities developed crisis response processes aimed at precarious migrants during the Covid-19 pandemic. To answer our research question, we build, from crisis management and local migration governance scholarships, an analytical model based on two crucial crisis-management task: decision-making and coordination. Such tasks imply reaching critical decisions and orchestrating a coherent response. We present raw and preliminary data from a survey made to municipal officials working in 90 municipalities across Spain. Our results bring to the table the capacity of cities to prepare and learn to protect (precarious) migrants from the implications of transboundary crises of various kinds.
