Bringing together a range of experts across various sectors, this 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.
Since the turn of the twenty-first century, there has been acknowledgement that the realities of crime and criminal justice in the smaller, more remote places of the world are not sufficiently reflected in criminological theory and research agendas (see Donnermeyer, 2017 ). Additionally, the aftermath of colonization further confounds our understanding of crime and justice, particularly in the rural Global South where the colonial past still influences criminal justice and policing systems in rural communities. Moreover, the economic, social, political and
This book unpacks the political economy of China’s COVID-19 vaccine supplies to the Global South. Examining the political and economic forces at play, the book demonstrates how China’s vaccine provisions have been determined by a complex set of commercial interests, domestic politics, and geopolitical relationships.
The book sheds light on how domestic interests shape China’s role in global governance and its international economic engagement. Its analysis contributes to broader academic debates on the politics and economics of crises, as well as offering new insights on how pre-existing political and market forces shape aid and trade in the context of crisis.
In this important book, experts assess what the COVID-19 pandemic means for gender inequalities in the global south, examining how threats to equitable development will impact the most marginalised and at-risk women and girls in particular.
The book draws on research across sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America to examine Covid-19-related issues around gender-based violence, work and care, education, and health care, and asks whether global responses are enough to mitigate the negative outcomes of deepening gender inequality. It is a guide to stimulate the important debate about how to promote women’s rights during the management and recovery phases of the pandemic.
various facets of politics and society – in the Global South as well as in the Global North. Aside from rather minor differences in detail, the binding factor of various postcolonial ideas and theories is that they all question the supposed superiority and exemplary character of ‘Western’ development concepts and strategies. They bring attention to the fact that the supposed achievements of the European modern age are the result of conquest, oppression and exploitation, which have been accompanied by racist devaluation and discrimination of people from different

Though a globally shared experience, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected societies across the world in radically different ways. This book examines the unique implications of the pandemic in the Global South.
With international contributors from a variety of disciplines including health, economics and geography, the book investigates the pandemic’s effects on development, medicine, gender (in)equality and human rights among other issues. Its analysis illuminates further subsequent crises of interconnection, a pervasive health provision crisis and a resulting rise in socio-economic inequality.
The book’s assessment offers an urgent discourse on the ways in which the impact of COVID-19 can be mitigated in some of the most challenging socio-economic contexts in the world.
91 6 The Plurality of Technology and Innovation in the Global South Mario Pansera, with Keren Naa Abeka Arthur, Andrea Jimenez and Poonam Pandey At face value, responsible innovation (RI) and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) address several aspects which were neglected in previous innovation concepts. With a more holistic framework, they suggest a great potential for global adaptability. However, a purely optimistic view risks ignoring the role that technological innovation has had in the so-called developing world and perpetuating patterns
The Problem While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc in the Global North, the worst is yet to come for the Global South, where the virus is currently spreading at a frightening speed. As of August 2020, eight of the ten countries with the most COVID-19 cases are in the Global South. The Global South entered this pandemic already substantially disadvantaged, and the predicaments, injustices, and improper living conditions faced by citizens that inhabit these countries will ultimately lead to millions of deaths. Vast, sprawling urban areas of the
Key messages Informal housing arrangements in the Global South have inherent and relational temporalities. The temporality within and across housing arrangements holds within it a space of transformation. A conceptual frame of choice and agency is key to policy engagement with housing temporalities. The state often does not recognise the temporality of self-made housing, but rather sets into motion housing temporalities. An absence of choice and agency in housing discourses creates conditions for precarity. Introduction Located within a
