The COVID-19 pandemic has shown, more than any other contemporary crisis, the need for concerted and coordinated actions between countries all over the world. However, the reluctance of many countries to work within traditional multilateral frameworks has pushed military organizations and alliances to take on ‘new roles’ in order to help member states and partners overcome these coordination challenges.
The Coronavirus is no great equalizer. At best, it has exposed severe inequalities, and at worst, it has led to their exacerbation. The reignition of the #BlackLivesMatter movement during the pandemic led hundreds of thousands of people to hit the streets in all 50 states of the United States and in over 60 countries asking for racial justice. These protests not only spoke out against the murders of innocent African Americans, policy brutality and the impunity of the perpetrators, but also drew attention to the systemic racism that plagues the lives of minorities in the US and beyond, and that has led them to be more affected by the pandemic, the latter being more deadly for black and brown communities.Keep me informed

Dans un contexte épidémique qui s’étend et pénètre plus profondément dans les pays du Sahel, et compte tenu du manque d’infrastructures sanitaires, combiné à des ressources limitées, le virus menace de déstabiliser davantage cette région, qui est également confrontée à une grave crise humanitaire déclenchée par le conflit armé en cours.Keep me informed
