The Global Impact of and responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Introduction

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


By introducing the objectives of the edited book, this chapter reflectively
discusses some of the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic
that raises many critical questions relating to several other
socio-economic and environmental problems we have been facing
in our daily lives. The role of governments or the lack of it in some
cases, the impact on people’s lives and economy, health infrastructure,
have caused serious concerns. Like the deadly corona virus,
greed, linear growth, racism and discrimination have been deeply
hurting humanity for centuries. To fight these and similar maladies
the chapter argues for a global citizenship approach.
