Capabilities and Covid-19

Panelists: Sakiko Fukuda-Parr (The New School), Sophie Mitra (Fordham University). Sridhar Venkatapuram (King’s College London)

How can a Capabilities framework help us to understand how CoVid-19 is affecting communities differently, and why? How will the Covid-19 crisis be affected by pre-existing inequalities and how will it create inequalities? During a crisis for existing economies, with ecological challenges ahead, can the Capabilities framework offer an alternative outlook as to the way forward from this crisis?
