*Update December 2022 - new deadline**

  • The deadline for submission of papers has been extended to 31 January 2023


A GLIDE research project has issued a call for papers for a special issue of ethic@ - An International Journal for Moral Philosophy.

The COVID-19 pandemic raises many ethical challenges, from the allocation of ICU (intensive care units) to the justification of mandatory vaccination. At the same time, many domestic and global structural inequalities influenced the outcomes of the pandemic from epidemiological, social, and economic perspectives.

At the global level, inequalities combined with scarcity and the deepening of nationalism put those particularly in the global south in a precarious situation. This is especially evident in the case of COVID-19 vaccine access.

This open-access issue aims to publish original works about the global situation this pandemic entails, relevant differences between public health measures and their impact in high-income countries versus low or middle ones, and how global injustice deepens in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, it aims to highlight viewpoints from both the global north and the south. As a result, original works in Spanish and Portuguese are especially welcome. The issue also will include the Spanish and Portuguese translations of some key articles originally published in English.

This special issue is edited in the framework of the research project “Global Health Justice: Duties of international cooperation for infectious disease control”. This project is supported by the Oxford-Johns Hopkins Global Infectious Disease Ethics Collaborative (GLIDE). GLIDE is funded by a Wellcome Humanities and Social Science Award.

Vitis the journal website for full details of the Call for Papers . The deadline for submissions is 30 November 2022 and the special issue will be published in April 2023.
