The world economy is surrounded by it, and therefore on a daily basis, there are many updates in the situation, which is rapidly changing the status of the nation’s worldwide. Some are on the verge of survival, some are trying to get the makeover and some are facing turmoil. In order to overcome this situation, the leaders of the different countries had to plan the strategies to deal with this current situation. Therefore, this paper is focused upon determining the different leadership styles followed by the leaders of the different countries and the effectiveness of these leadership styles in handling the Covid-19 situation. Both primary and secondary data has been collected for the research. This research would encourage the academicians, researchers, management students, corporate managers and employees etc. to understand the impact of different leadership styles followed by the leaders to control any devastating situation that could shatter the economy of any nation.

The effects of working spaces on our health and well-being, as “individual living spaces” that are affected by the physical and social environment and also affect our perceptions of the psychological environment, are among the issues that have been emphasized in recent years. With the Covid 19 pandemic; remote working has become the norm around the world, especially for office workers. With the transition to working at home, the lines and distances between work and office areas have begun to blur gradually. As a result of this transition, creating a private space in the home has become important. Our study deals with the multidisciplinary subject "home as a workplace" in the context of the relationship between the individual and the environment. For this purpose, posts about working from home on a social networking platform were evaluated with content analysis. The findings were presented over the themes formed as a result of content analysis, with indicators such as time interval, gender, job-occupation, demographics and organization of the work area, institutionalism, life balance. The findings show that the posts on the subject are mostly positive, the majority of those who share are women, and from the beginning of the epidemic, arranging the daily routine at home and creating a working area are priority issues.</em></p> Çiğdem Vatansever Meltem Sezer Ayça Ünsever Copyright (c) 2021 Border Crossing 2021-09-19 2021-09-19 11 2 137 156 10.33182/bc.v11i2.1643 The History of Migration from Turkey to Western Europe: A Multi-theoretical Analysis of the Routes to Germany and the United Kingdom https://journals.tplondon.com/bc/article/view/1539 <p><em>Since the existing research on migration from Turkey to Western Europe does not employ multiple theoretical perspectives, this article, based on two field studies, focuses on the changing phases and forms of this human mobility by utilising a number of relevant international migration theories. The article examines the uncovered socio-economic, demographic, and political aspects of migration from Turkey to Germany and the United Kingdom and unpacks how the parameters and motives for these two routes have changed from a comparative historical perspective. In this way, it deepens the discussion on the factors and circumstances leading to migration and demonstrates that while individual, household, and historical-structural distinctions and conflicts initiate human mobility, it is perpetuated by ongoing differences, a culture of migration, networks, and ethnic economies.</em></p> Mehmet Rauf Kesici Copyright (c) 2021 Border Crossing 2021-10-09 2021-10-09 11 2 175 192 10.33182/bc.v11i2.1539 Newcomer challenges with accessing healthcare services in Saskatchewan, Canada https://journals.tplondon.com/bc/article/view/1222 <p><em>Newcomers experience a variety of barriers to healthcare services. The study objective is to identify newcomers’ healthcare barriers. During 2014-2015, we conducted in-depth interviews with service providers, and newcomer parents who had been in Saskatchewan for under 5 years. Primary themes include: 1) navigation difficulty, 2) limited awareness, 3) language, 4) interpretation and translation, 5) health benefits, 6) service limitations and stigma, 7) gender and cultural concerns, 8) health attitudes and beliefs, and 9) work demands. The results exposed service gaps and suggest options to improve access to healthcare. Consideration should be given to the development of formal processes to ensure the provision of information concerning healthcare and health benefit programs, as well as responsive healthcare services, including convenient primary healthcare sites that offer comprehensive care in a culturally responsive manner with embedded interpretation services to ensure that the Saskatchewan healthcare system does not perpetuate or create health disparities.</em></p> Ginny Lane Mayari Hengstermann Judy White Hassan Vatanparast Copyright (c) 2021 Border Crossing 2021-09-21 2021-09-21 11 2 157 174 10.33182/bc.v11i2.1222
