Structural Vulnerability and COVID

In 2022, Migrant Action and The University of Leeds started a collaborative project ‘Structural Vulnerability + COVID’.
Covid-19 and the murder of George Floyd by a serving policeman in the United States, further exposed the consequences of systemic/structural injustice rooted in socio-cultural, political and economic hierarchies and the disproportionate impact of these ‘hierarchies’ on structurally disadvantaged groups/constituencies. There is overwhelming consensus underpinned by research, that BAME communities including migrants faired worse in the pandemic not due to their collective recklessness or some natural deficiencies, rather, their precarious outcomes found root in routine structural vulnerability and structural ‘neglect’ that precede the pandemic.
We are very excited to announce that Volume 1, Issue 2 of the project is here!
