The Covid-19 pandemic works like a burning glass: It increases social injustice by exacerbating poverty and hardship in many parts of the world. A look at the refugee camps at the European external borders or at individual regions of Latin America is enough to see that there is hardly any talk of a successful pandemic fight and global solidarity. This is because the fight against Covid-19 is not a purely medical, but also a political challenge. It depends on the political circumstances in individual countries and international relations. The circumstances are also used to secure domestic and geopolitical advantages and to prevent changes. What role can civil society organizations and initiatives play here? How should global health policy be carried out, what should a world order look like so that crises grow not less but more global justice?
