  3. COVID-19

    02 April 2020

    This pandemic health crisis impacts a world already in crisis. It will have a disproportionate impact on the most vulnerable in our society and particularly in the Global South unless we mobilise and demand a just response to the pandemic. It is a wake-up call that the current capitalist economic system is not fit to protect the health of us as individuals or as societies. We must learn the lessons to defeat COVID-19, address the multiple crises we face―from accelerating inequality to the climate crisis―and build the just sustainable society we all desire.

  4. El Estado, las respuestas públicas, y el día después de la pandemia

    Daniel Chavez
    31 March 2020

    La cobertura mediática internacional y la mayoría de los análisis académicos se han centrado hasta ahora en la magnitud de la pandemia del virus COVID-19 en las sociedades ricas del norte, en particular en los países europeos. Las referencias a la realidad europea, sin embargo, ocultan profundas diferencias en cómo la crisis está afectando a diversos países y sectores sociales. Este artículo analiza las respuestas del sector público en el contexto europeo (con énfasis en la dimensión socio-económica) y sugiere algunas “lecciones” que podrían ser relevantes o de utilidad para América Latina y otras regiones del mundo.

    30 March 2020

    Concerns are deepening in the Kachin and Shan States as the government seeks to close internal displacement camps while conflict continues and the coronavirus is still spreading. War-shattered communities face a highly uncertain future. This commentary reports on a new initiative by civil society organisations to ensure that the human rights and security of IDPs are protected. But without peace and political reform, there are many worries that the crisis will only continue.

  6. Coronavirus: la necesidad de una respuesta internacionalista progresista

    28 March 2020

  7. The State, Public Responses, and the Day After the Pandemic

    Daniel Chavez
    27 March 2020

    The international media coverage and academic analyses have mainly focused on the magnitude of the COVID-19 crisis in the affluent societies of the North, in particular the European countries. The rather biased references to Europe, however, hide profound differences in the ways the crisis is affecting diverse countries and social sectors. This article examines the responses of the public sector to the pandemic in the European context and then suggests possible “lessons” for Latin America and other regions of the world.

    Walden Bello
    23 March 2020

    The Coronavirus pandemic is the second major crisis of globalization in a decade. We did not learn our lessons from the financial crisis and this is perhaps why the impact of COVID-19 has been even more massive.

    03 March 2020
    Right-wing populists have been gaining support throughout Europe. Their nationalist and xenophobic outlook that seeks to reassert national glories has found a great support among rural communities in many countries.
