Perspectives Asia #10 launch event
Fabric of Society - Living through the Pandemic
In autumn 2021, the Covid-19 global pandemic lingers on even though vaccinations are getting pace. The 10th issue of Heinrich Böll Stiftung (hbs)'s serial publication Perspectives Asia takes a look at how the pandemic is reshaping state/society relationships in different Asian countries; it also shares down-to-earth Covid-19 experiences from different regions and cultures, on issues as diverse as trust in government institutions, the situation of migrant workers, and gender relationships.
In the online event, several contributors to this issue of Perspectives Asia will discuss their work and observations on the Covid-19 pandemic. While there is no definite end to the pandemic yet, this event serves as a celebration of mutual support and resilience among hbs colleagues, partners, and stakeholders in Europe and Asia as we live through the pandemic.
