Exposing the cracks: COVID-19 and global inequality
The pandemic continues to expose and deepen inequalities worldwide. From the start, black and brown communities were disproportionally affected and women have born the brunt in terms of gendered violence, caring responsibilities and economic hardship. Governments have led with nationalistic responses and are creating global vaccine apartheid, all while the world’s billionaires accumulate even more riches.
This event brings together researchers from three GCRF Hubs to discuss whether the pandemic can be used as a disruption to the system - exposing cracks that can be exploited to confront power and inequality – or whether it is business-as-usual, exacerbating inequalities and privileging those with power. The event will showcase some innovative responses to tackling inequalities during COVID from each Hub, as well as exposing where we are consistently held back, even in the face of a pandemic.
The ARISE Hub aims at strengthening accountability mechanisms for improving equitable health and well-being for people living and working in informal urban spaces. The MIDEQ Hub aims to transform understanding of the relationship between migration and inequality in the context of the Global South by decentring the production of knowledge away from the Global North. The Gender, Justice and Security Hub seeks to advance gender justice and inclusive peace in conflict-affected societies.
