New free book: Vulnerable: The law, policy and ethics of Covid-19
The contents of this 649-page book ’confronts the vulnerabilities that have been revealed by the pandemic and its consequences.
It examines vulnerabilities for people who have been harmed or will be harmed by the virus directly and those harmed by measures taken to slow its relentless march; vulnerabilities exposed in our institutions, governance, and legal structures; and vulnerabilities in other countries and at the global level where persistent injustices affect us all.
Covid-19 has forced us to not only reflect on how we govern and how we set policy priorities, but also to ensure that pandemic preparedness, precautions, and recovery include all individuals, not just some.’
Most of its contents are focused on Canada. However, there are articles about other places, with the last 100 pages on “Global health and governance”.
