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.
