  2. How Has COVID-19 Changed The Violent Extremist Landscape?
    The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the normative social order of democratic societies in profound ways: lockdowns, public health mandates, a range of restrictions on movement and behaviour, and the rapid development of new-generation vaccines. This disruption has occurred amid an environment of risk and uncertainty that threatens peoples’ sense of security, stability, and resilience. The rise of pandemic-led conspiracy thinking has therefore been predictable. Source: CREST
  3. Beyond the Three-Act Narrative: Other Urban Lives and COVID 19
    The dominant discourse of COVID 19 and cities seems to be built around a singular narrative, assuming the crisis has been more or less the same for different places with few variations. It establishes an ongoing story in three acts: business as usual; disruption by lock-down, which empties streets and transformed routines; and a gradual return, where we are rethinking the role of public spaces. Yet this discourse fails to consider other street lives and urban cultures which exist in large parts of the world, and the most vulnerable populations, who are dealing with the hardest aspects of the pandemic.
