As consequências socioeconómicas da COVID-19 e a sua desigual distribuição (COLABOR)

As consequências socioeconómicas da pandemia COVID-19 não configuram uma simples tradução de um perigo natural que a todos afeta, mas sim o resultado de um conjunto de riscos socialmente construídos e potenciados. Mesmo quando têm origens naturais, os riscos manifestam-se na esfera social, económica e política assimetricamente. Este livro aborda a partir de uma perspetiva multidimensional, e considerando escalas de análise diferenciadas, as vulnerabilidades sociais, económicas e institucionais da sociedade portuguesa face à crise pandémica e suas consequências socioeconómicas.
