How can a mobility perspective shed light on the current Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis, and what new can we learn about mobilities through the pandemic? Mobilities are not only human practices, they are also policy tools, subject of regulation, and fundamentally ways of how the global society is organized and disrupted. This forum facilitates brainstorming among researchers from multiple disciplines in different parts of the world to deepen our understandings of the crisis, and to explore new tools in migration research that will help us to make sense of the fast-moving world. We conceive mobility broadly, including migration cross-border as well as within a country, daily commute and mundane mobility, mobile work (e.g. taxi drivers and delivery workers) and mobile lifestyle (e.g. travelling communities and tourists). Apart from the movement of people, we also consider the movement of things such as equipment and medical samples. Immobility is equally important as we witness the erection of borders and boundaries of all kinds during the pandemic.
