Panel on COVID-19 and mobility

The ISC research lab of the Institute for Societal Resilience cordially invites you to the panel Covid 19: A Global Crisis of Infrastructures, Sustainability and Commons, taking place online on 3 June at 15.00 hours (Amsterdam time).

Far from being “the great equalizer,” the Covid-19 crisis has proven to be an illustrative lens to analyze the production of social inequality. The brunt of the pandemic has been borne unequally, and differentiated access to hospital beds, vaccines, work, and social safety nets reflect and exacerbate hitherto inequalities in human mobility and well-being. As part of the MOBB research week (1-4 June, 2021), the ISC research lab of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam organizes a panel on the effects of Covid-19 on global and local (im)mobility.

The panel counts on contributions by Bram Büscher (Wageningen University), Jorge Calvimontes (UNICAMP), Luciana Massaro (UNICAMP/VU Amsterdam), Philipp Pattberg (VU Amsterdam), Peer Smets (VU Amsterdam), and Harry Wels (VU Amsterdam). The panel will conclude with a roundtable discussion guided by Dimitris Dalakoglou and Marjo de Theije (VU Amsterdam).

The panel takes place via Zoom and is accessible here:
