Abstract of the Webinar:

A few weeks before the arrival of Covid-19, we published a special issue of New Global Studies on borders and globalisation. With the global pandemic, border-thinking is on steroids. Countries, regions and cities have all rushed to close borders. The world’s extreme inequities are laid bare. What will happen next?
