Vaccine Geopolitics During a Global Pandemic
Jennifer N. Hyndman, Professor in Departments of Geography and Social Science, and Resident Scholar at the Centre for Refugee Studies

This short talk will look at the intersection of COVID-19 with other humanitarian disasters, such war, a huge ‘risk factor’ and explores the thickening of borders and potential balkanization of the world.
