Who are cities for? As societies reel from the impacts of COVID-19 across the globe, this question has never been more pertinent.
Bringing together a collection of critical urban voices across a variety of disciplines, this four-volume Shorts series explores the challenges and the opportunities facing cities in the wake of the pandemic. The contributors draw from case studies across the globe and reveal how the pandemic and its economic fallout have created new inequalities while exacerbating existing ones.
Offering crucial insights for reforming cities to be more resilient to future crises, this is an invaluable resource for scholars and policy makers alike.
“This collection on the impacts of COVID on a diversity of sites and communities gives a rich and textured account of the spatial and social inequalities produced and reinforced by this terrible pandemic.”
