Corona Brief Africa

Der #FESAfricaCoronaBrief, ein Blog mit dem Titel: „Zerreißprobe: Wie COVID-19 auf afrikanische Gesellschaften trifft“, untersucht wie afrikanische Länder, Regierungen und Gemeinschaften mit der Pandemie umgehen.

Mit Beiträgen von unseren 25 FES-Büros in Subsahara-Afrika, von Partner-Organisationen und uns verbundenen Expert_innen soll dieser Blog afrikanischen und internationalen Stimmen eine Plattform bieten, um hier die Gefahren für die Gesellschaften, aber auch mögliche Wege zu afrikanischen Lösungen aufzuzeigen.

Die in diesem Blog geäußerten Meinungen sind nicht notwendigerweise die der Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.
