WG1: Vulnerability and HealthCare


After reflection on the results of its previous mandate (Exploring Vulnerability in Responding to Covid-19), Working Group 1 has taken on a new topic “Vulnerability and Healthcare”. The new topic builds on themes from the group’s working paper “Vulnerability in the Time of Covid-19” (February 2021), published in English, Italian and Spanish.

The group aims to encourage interdisciplinary explorations of vulnerability in contemporary healthcare ranging from the clinical and ethical problems encountered at the level of the relationship between doctor and patient, through to broader systemic issues such as health policy and economics.
