Abstract
The COVID-19 pandemic is not simply a public health crisis. Policies implemented to contain its spread have had profound political and economic consequences, raising deep and pressing questions of ethics and justice. In this collection of essays, experts from the fields of political philosophy and political theory explain what the crisis has revealed about our societies, and how we might move forward to build a better world. Organized around five central themes, the chapters consider the impact of COVID-19 on social welfare and vulnerability, economic justice, democratic relations, speech and mis(information), and our ability to envisage a better and more just society in the future.
