Religious inequalities and the impact of Covid-19

Share this:

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to take its huge and tragic toll on the world’s population, it is being felt hardest by the poorest and most marginalised communities in the world, whichever kind of political, economic, social, religious exclusion they experience. In particular, we are witnessing how Covid-19 is exacerbating pre-existing religious inequalities. It is essential to both identify this and provide support, to address the particular impact of Covid-19 on more vulnerable groups and to “build back better”.

The Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID)  commissioned blogs, op eds and other non-academic outputs which share  perspectives of the realities and experiences of religious minorities and people with non-majority beliefs in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and its aftermath in Iraq, Pakistan and other countries.
