This article by Ngozi Erondu and Emmanuel Agogo discusses the likely impact that the pandemic will have in Africa, South America and South East Asia, parts of the world often collected under the term the global south. The article considers the possible impact of the pandemic in this region, but also the experience that, in particular, many African nations have in dealing with pandemics. A multi-directional flow of expertise may be the best way to alleviate global suffering as this crisis continues to build.
Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies monitors the Covid-19 pandemic
There is little doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic affects communities and nations across the world in different ways, and that the world’s poor are going to experience this crisis much more keenly than people belonging to affluent communities. As a postcolonial research centre, Linnaeus University Centre for Concurrences in Colonial and Postcolonial Studies will help monitor the development of the crisis. At the centre's web page above, you will find research and opinion pieces that highlight the dispersed and uneven impact of the crisis in Swedish and global society.
Our aim is that articles that we refer to should be open to the public. However, we cannot guarantee that all articles will be, as media companies' policies and the availability of individual articles may change over time.
