Rights for Time Webinar: Pandemic Borderscapes and Governance: Mobility and Rights
On November 22nd 2021 we presented the next webinar in our bimonthly webinar series. Tamirace Fakhoury presented her research on how governance during the Covid-19 pandemic interacted with mobility and people´s rights. It also explored how the politics of governing the pandemic intersected with the emergence of blurry borders and boundaries in which new forms of stuckness and precarity have come fully to the fore.

She is also the Scientific advisor to the Kuwait Chair at Sciences Po in Paris (2020-2022).
