You are cordially invited to the book launch of the DSAI publication COVID-19 in the Global South: Impacts and Responses.
The book brings together a range of experts across various sectors and the important volume explores some of the key issues that have arisen in the Global South with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Situating the worldwide health crisis within broader processes of globalisation, the book investigates implications for development and gender, as well as the effects on migration, climate change and economic inequality.
Contributors consider how widespread and long-lasting responses to the pandemic should be, while paying particular attention to the accentuated risks faced by vulnerable populations. Providing answers that will be essential to development practitioners and policy makers, the book offers vital insights into how the impact of COVID-19 can be mitigated in some of the most challenging socio-economic contexts worldwide.
The book launch will discuss the key lessons thus far and necessary future policy directions to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic in the Global South.
Our speakers are:
Professor Francis Owusu, Department of Community and Regional Planning at Iowa State University.
Dr Sinead Walsh, Deputy Director General for Irish Aid.
The event will include a Q & A and will be moderated by DSAI chair Professor Padraig Carmody.
