How can the logic of health be delinked from the logic of the market in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic? Sakiko Fukuda-Parr spoke with the University of Bergen's Global Research Programme on Inequality as part of their miniseries on COVID-19.
Many global leaders from French President Emmanuel Macron to Russia's Vladimir Putin have fed into a narrative of a "war" against COVID-19, describing health workers as "front-liners" in a daily battle to face an invisible enemy. Nina Khrushcheva recently analyzed this rhetoric in the article "The Fog of COVID-19 War Propaganda," where she warned that "beating" another country in ideological competition is not the same as managing an outbreak. Nina also contributed to some timely reading lists including The New School's History, Politics, and Global Connectivity series as well as Project Syndicate's Notes from Lockdown.

On April 28th, the Graduate Programs in International Affairs at The New School, along with Health Policy Watch, held a webinar titled, “COVID-19 and Global Inequality.” This event was part of the Global Pandemics in an Unequal World series and featured Manjari Mahajan, co-director of the India China Institute as a panelist. The webinar was also moderated by program director Sakiko Fukuda-Parr. Watch the full video here
