COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic poses multiple and partly dramatic challenges to the global community. It has led to a severe economic crisis and exposed weaknesses in international cooperation. The crisis threatens to deepen existing social inequalities - on the one hand within national borders, but also particularly drastically in a global comparison. But it also shows that global cooperation and collaboration are urgently needed to overcome the pandemic.

In commentaries, briefing papers, commissioned studies, journal articles and blog posts, ÖFSE scientists have addressed a wide range of issues related to the global impact of the pandemic. In addition, ÖFSE voices could be heard, seen and read at events and in various media. On this page we provide an overview of ÖFSE's work on the topic.
