An original research paper from the Inequality & Exclusion team is featured as an exclusive for The Independent.
“Our data shows that members of underprivileged communities, specifically racially, were more likely to work in the gig economy that was most affected by the initial hit of the pandemic back in March and this had a far-reaching impact," says Paul Von Chamier, the paper's author and research officer at CIC.
CIC Non-resident fellows Maaike de Langen and Peter Chapman co-authored an article in the International Institute for Sustainable Development SDG knowledge hub.
"Justice is a thread that runs through all 17 SDGs," they wrote. "Without justice, the world will not be able to end poverty, reduce inequality, reach the furthest behind, strengthen sustainability, or achieve peace and inclusion. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and deepened inequalities and injustices."
CIC non-resident fellow Faiza Shaheen goes on Al Jazeera's Studio B: Unscripted to discuss how to combat racism in their respective fields of genetics and economics. They also examine the legacy of empire and how this has affected notions of identity and belonging at a time of polarisation and distrust.
CIC senior fellow James Traub wrote for Politico about previous attempts to reform the filibuster, and what it means for the proposal backed by President Biden.
"If we must have a filibuster, let it be a talking one. But let’s not stop there: We need to find new ways to limit debate, as Humphrey and his colleagues sought to do, so that our legislative bodies serve rather than obstruct the cause of justice."
