Bottom-up Resilience? Challenges for the Marginalized Publics under COVID-19 (Part II)
During the COVID-19 crisis, community self-help and mutual support have become critical to the survival of many individuals, lending a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable populations in our society. As the second of a two-part series, this webinar builds on the discussion of civil society efforts on the first day to drill into the challenges facing the marginalized populations during the pandemic. This session brings together researchers and organizers from Hong Kong, Taipei, and Tokyo to highlight efforts of both supporting organizations and the marginalized social groups during COVID-19. Through short presentations followed by a roundtable discussion, the session explores both the agency of marginalized groups to engage in self-help initiatives and the challenges faced by supporting organizations. It further explores the implications of these efforts for long-term social resilience in the Pacific Rim.
The co-organizers of the webinar include Prof Jeffrey Hou, University of Washington, Assi Prof Shu-Mei Huang, National Taiwan University, and Assoc Prof Elizabeth Maly, Tohoku University.
