Recently we launched an international thread to the ISR blog with goal of amassing views and responses around the world; and we have been thrilled to receive a range of diverse contributions that we will be posting in the coming days.

Of course, the world does not stop for anything – not even a global pandemic; and the death for George Floyd from police violence and the arising protests, are a keen illustration of this.

As we aim to keep the blog relevant, and so from next week, we will be interspersing pieces from our international partners with commentary on racism and #blacklivesmatter.

As always, these pieces will be pithy, yet apolitical and approximately 500 words.

If you would like to contribute to this thread, or invite your international collaborators/partners to contribute to the continuing commentary on Covid-19, then please submit your contributions via [email protected]

We look forward to hearing from you.
