HIC President offers insights from the Coalition to face the Covid-19

Adriana Allen, HIC President, offers the insights of the Coalition in the Covid-19 crisis and beyond the pandemic.

This presentation is developed during the Global Platform for the Right to the City Assembly. Since the beginning of the crisis of the Covid-19, our coalition has been working on three fronts:

  • First, creating spaces for dialogue and learning to make sense of what this emergency means for the most vulnerable.
  • Second, and acknowledging that COVID19 didn’t come with a manual, we are supporting exchanges and documenting localized responses to the crisis.
  • Last, but not least, we are constantly focusing on advocating for the radical changes required.

Protecting human rights should be at the center of pandemic and post pandemic responses!

HIC Members, Friends and Allies have been actively responding to the COVID19 crisis in multiple ways across the world.

This presentation offers an overview on the ways in which the current crisis has soo far been predominantly framed and on how it should be reframed.

COVID-19 makes visible how deep structural inequalities shape what being affected by the virus means. So, what can we do differently to ensure that the shocks felt worldwide today pave the way for long needed structural changes?
