Is our planet a COVID planet? Is Covid just a temporary state or a more permanent condition? I think the COVID scare will have permanent repercussions because, at least for the moment, it seems that the virus has taken over the world. This is a new state (?) Isn’t it? I cannot picture how the world could be the same after the pandemic ends, if ever it does. 


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and the International Institute of Social Studies in the Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented migrants.
