This pioneering book demonstrates the disproportionate impact of state responses to COVID-19 on racially marginalized communities.

Written by women and queers of colour academics and community activists, the book analyses pandemic lockdowns, border controls, vaccine trials, income support and access to healthcare across eight countries, in North America, Asia, Australasia and Europe, to reveal the inequities within, and between countries.

Putting intersectional social justice at the heart of their frameworks, the authors call for coordinated and collective action to effectively control the pandemic.

Contributing to debates around the effects of COVID-19, as well as racial capitalism and neoliberal globalization at large, this research is invaluable in informing future policy.
