Contributor(s): Professor Naila Kabeer | Join us for this first lecture in our new series organised in memory of Sylvia Chant which will be delivered by Naila Kabeer.
Professor Kabeer will use a feminist economic lens to analyse a range of different impacts associated with COVID-19 and to explore the kinds of policies that such a lens would suggest for a more resilient and equitable future.
